Social Event and Networking - on Saturday Evening we will be holding a Samba drumming workshop that should make the evening go with a swing - meet others with similar interests while you're winding down and make links that will help your projects in the future.


Places are advertised as £29.90 per person but we can provide you with places for only £25.30 (inc VAT) per person if you can send a group from your SCM group/Chaplaincy of 4 or more. We also have some other lower priced tickets for people facing hardship – please contact us to discuss (see contact details at the bottom of the page).


A number of budget hotels are conveniently located within easy walking distance of the conference venue. Alternatively a sports hall floor (with showers and toilets) has been booked in the city centre for those who wish to bring their own sleeping bags. This can be booked at the very reasonable rate of £5.75 per person per night (note that it comes up as a workshop option as you go through the booking process). (Hall floor: breakfast is not included).
