Packs and written material – Delegate packs and information can be made available in large print and on different colours of paper on request, in English.
Unfortunately, due to not having any funding, we cannot do delegate packs in  Braille, audio or other formats. However we can send all information to you electronically in advance.

Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan and gluten-free light refreshments will be available during the day.
There is a break between the daytime and evening events and a list of some of the local restaurants is in the delegate pack.

If you have any specific dietary requirements please email us before we get refreshments arranged. Please note hot and cold soft drinks and biscuits and cakes are available, there will not be a buffet or full meal, as refreshments are included in the entry fee and we aim to keep prices low so we don’t exclude anyone.
Email: with specific dietary requirements and we’ll see what we can do.
