For people attending the tutorials (and anyone else who was around), on Friday evening there was an informal get-together at The Zagora Restaurant, Fletchers Walk (underneath the Conference venue) at 7.30pm.
There was a Conference Dinner on the evening of 8th August. This is included in the Conference fee. You can buy extra tickets for spouses, friends, etc.
After the Conference on Sunday evening, some people may have gone to the Tap and Spile, in Gas Street and adjacent to Broad Street just a few minutes from the Conservatoire. It serves real ale. See Here
There is no need for your partner to be a Conference Widow at Summer 2009
A Partners' Programme is being planned, win some Brownie points and tell your partner about Summer 2009. A provisional programe has been prepared which you can see here Partners Programme Note that the Friday part (ie tutorials day) of the programme has been cancelled due to the guides' work commitments.
