Conference Reception (Monday 14 September)

The Fitzwilliam Museum is one of the greatest glories of the University of Cambridge. It is a museum of international stature, with unique collections held in an iconic building. It owes its foundation to Richard, VII Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion who, in 1816, bequeathed to the University of Cambridge his works of art and library, together with funds to house them.   The collection has grown over the years and now includes fine examples of Impressionist art, Egyptian and medieval artifacts, fine porcelain from the major European houses and much more.   The conference drinks reception at the museum offers a unique opportunity to browse some of the galleries while the museum is closed to the general public.

Conference Dinner (Tuesday 15 September)

Set in the heart of Cambridge, St Catharine’s College is one of the oldest Colleges of the University, founded in 1473.  The college Dining Hall will be the venue for the Conference Dinner.  We hope to hold the preceding drinks reception in the college gardens, but if the weather is inclement it will be held in the McGrath room.

College Backs Punting Tour

The essential part of any Cambridge experience, a chauffeur punt tour through the Backs takes you along one of the most beautiful lengths of river in England. Punting offers the perfect introduction to Cambridge, so come and enjoy the spectacular views whilst your expert guide (who will do the punting for you!) brings the city’s fascinating story to life.   We have organised a punt tour to take place on Tuesday 15th September, at 1630.  If you would like to go on it, please come to the registration desk anytime during the conference up to 1200 on the Tuesday if you would like to sign up.  You will need to pay us in cash.  The price will vary slightly depending on how many people go on the tour but should be around 11GBP each.
