The main conference takes place on Thursday 5th October in the Weston Theatre at the Museum of London. Registration is from 8.25am – with the first speaker at 9.25am. The conference will close at 5.00pm. Your ticket gives you access to all the talks at the conference.

Workshops and Seminars
Workshops and seminars take place on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 October in the Terrace Gallery and the Garden Room at the Museum of London. The workshop rooms are located next to the Museum of London’s garden. All the workshops and seminars are now fully booked.

Please note that Tube drivers are planning to stage a 24-hour strike on Thursday 5 October, after voting in favour of industrial action in a dispute over working conditions. We urge you to plan ahead and find alternative travel arrangements. Obviously the strike is outside of our control but we are very sorry for this potential travel disruption.
