How do I get to the conference venue?  

The conference and the accommodation is at University of Manchester Hulme Hall/Victoria Park Campus, which is about 3 miles from the centre of Manchester. The address is Victoria Park Campus, Hulme Hall, Oxford Place, Manchester M14 5RR.   A map of the venue can be downloaded below.

Manchester has excellent rail links with the rest of the country. Buses from the station to the campus are very frequent, or a taxi may be preferred (just over 2 miles from station). There is a reasonable amount of parking in the campus grounds and ample on-the-road parking nearby.

What happens when I arrive?


Please make your way to the registration desk at Hulme Hall, you can access the map below.


Note that there will be somebody at the desk to deal with registration and general enquiries throughout Friday afternoon (2.30 to 7pm) , and Saturday and Sunday mornings (9am to 12.30). For outside of these times, please use one of the emergency phone numbers that you have been sent,  also available at the registration desk,  or just ask one of the volunteers who will be around throughout the weekend (volunteers will be clearly identifiable from their bee-like appearance - they'll be wearing yellow and black-striped tops).  


When you register, you will be provided with the final conference programme and a map of the campus. Notice boards in the foyer will let you know about your workshop allocations.
