2019 Convention – Nottingham

After a quick change, Nottingham Conferences being concerned that there were insufficient parking facilities at the our original venue, we relocated to the De Vere Jubilee Conference Centre, 16 Orston Drive, NG8 1DH, which is about a mile away from the original Studio 7.
