Monday evening - pre-conference buffet

The opening of the exhibition will be accompanied by a buffet for delegates and exhibitors at 1930 in the East Midlands Conference Centre.

Tuesday evening - 'are you dancing?'

For those who stripped the willow with us last September, you'll not need reminding of the fun that was had by all! Kilter, Glasgow's upbeat 4 piece ceilidh band, will be returning to ALT-C with reels and jigs to entertain all in attendance. To get a feel for the celtic sound listen to a 7 MB, 6 minute MP3 of Kilter.
(An evening meal on campus will be provided prior to this social event.)

For those who would prefer to explore what Nottingham has on offer, then the city is open all hours. From bowling and the cinema, to live music and the theatre, there's venues to suit all tastes and ages. The Cornerhouse, the Broadway, Nottingham Arena, The Royal Centre, and Nottingham Playhouse are right in the city centre, hosting concerts, shows, live film and music. If you love music there's World class symphony orchestras, musicals, superstar DJs and the coolest rock bands play; from Halle to Gatecrasher.
(Please note for delegates who choose this social option an evening meal will be provided. However, it is the delegate's responsibility to arrange transport to and from the campus.)

Wednesday evening - Conference Dinner

Picture of Colwick Hall Hotel A drinks reception and splendid three-course dinner with wine will be served at the Colwick Hall Hotel. This magnificent palladian style Georgian country house mansion nestles in over sixty acres of parkland; a historic building dating back to Saxon times and once the ancestral home of Lord Byron. Colwick Hall is a grade II* listed manor with a grand entrance overlooking Nottingham racecourse.
ALT's evening will be held in the Lakeside Pavilion - a grand marquee within the grounds of Colwick Hall, set alongside the lake overlooking the country park. With an accompaniment of jazz piano to create a welcoming, vibrant atmosphere, the evening we can assure will be a 'high class affair'!

(Ticketed transport to and from this social event will be provided - from EMCC to Colwick Hall Hotel.)

Please note that the Conference Dinner is now fully booked.

Thursday evening - close of conference buffet

A buffet lunch will be provided upon request at time of booking.
