Group Meal

As has become tradition in recent years, participants will have the opportunity to eat together at a local restaurant. This year it will be on the Monday evening because we'll be keeping the venue open longer than usual on the Sunday. We will be visiting a local Mediterranean restaurant called Medina and have reserved the tables for 7.30pm.

Since this isn't part of the conference itself, it's not included in the conference ticket. The cost is £22.50 for the meal, which you should indicate on the page when signing up. Please note that you must sign up in advance; the restaurant wants final numbers two weeks beforehand and will not accept people turning up on the night.

Trip to Devil's Bridge Falls

On Tuesday, April 17th there will be an excursion to Devil's Bridge Falls, a tourist attraction 12 miles from Aberystwyth. The Falls Nature Trail provides a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge. The Vale of Rheidol Railway runs from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge, which is only a 4-minute walk from the Falls.


First the Vale of Rheidol Railway

... then the Falls.

It promises to be a great day out!
