Most workshops will have to restrict numbers to between 40 to 50 people due to limitations on physical space.
Whilst many people will come for the whole of the Conference, the day is structured in a way that allows people who, say, have a particular interest in a specific workshop to come to that workshop alone.
Attendees are asked to bring their lunch with them alternatively, sandwiches will be available for purchase at the Conference. These can be pre-ordered. For the menu click here.
Coffee, tea etc will be available free of charge from 10.30 to 11.00 and from 12.30 to 1.30.
There is no financial charge for attending the Conference, but there will be buckets for donations for those who wish to contribute to the cost. KingsGate is kindly giving the Conference Centre free of charge and Network Peterborough is underwriting any other costs relating to the Conference.
