The conference finishes on Sunday, April 20th but for those wanting to stay a bit longer we have two further activities.
In keeping with tradition there will be an opportunity for participants to eat together in a restaurant. This year we have chosen to go to the Sheffield branch of the chain Zizzi, which is located about a five-minute walk away from the conference venue.
This is an optional extra for participants and so have to be paid for in addition to the conference fee. The cost is £20.50 for the set menu and the meal will take place once the conference itself is over, which will likely be about 7pm on Sunday, April 20th. A menu is available to view here.
You may have noticed that we previously mentioned a tapas bar called Platillos and have changed the details. Platillos, unfortunately, went out of business on the 31st of January, and so we've changed the venue.
Day out to Brodsworth Hall
On Monday, April 21st we will visit Brodsworth Hall, a Victorian country house that remains virtually unchanged from 1860. We will travel by coach from Sheffield in the morning and return in the afternoon. Because this is a supplemental activity it must be purchased in addition to the main conference ticket. The cost is £20, which covers coach travel and entry. Members of English Heritage and Histroic Scotland do not have to pay an entry fee (providing they present their membership cards on arrival) and so the cost for them is £10 each.
