An evening welcome reception will be held in the Diamond conference venue on the opening day, Sunday, June 17th, immediately following two Keynote Lectures that are a special feature of the conference. A get-together party will be held on Monday evening in the city’s Millennium Galleries, the first full day of the conference. On Wednesday afternoon delegates either have free time or can take advantage of several optional visits to local places of interest of which there are many, including for example, Chatsworth House and many historic industrial sites; details of these will appear on the conference website. The all-ticket conference Banquet for delegates and accompanying persons (with tickets!) will be held that evening in the magnificent Cutler’s Hall in the city centre.
