Conference registration

We are very grateful for the generous sponsorship of WRoCAH, which has enabled us to offer registration at a standard price of £25, and a reduced student rate of £15. This includes refreshments and lunch on both days, and a wine reception on 2 June. Accommodation is not included, but there are many reasonably priced options in the area.

We would also like to invite you to join us for dinner at the Botanist on 1 June. We are asking for a contribution towards the cost of dinner of £15, payable at the same time as the registration fee. This will be a great opportunity to continue the discussions of the day in an informal setting.
