The opportunity to sign up for the conference dinner has now closed as we have already had to confirm final numbers with the restaurant.

The set menu will be:
First course – Parsnip, apple and chestnut soup with freshly baked bread (v)
Second course – Traditional British Christmas dinner – Roast turkey, pigs in blankets (= sausages and bacon), stuffing, cranberry sauce, vegetables, potatoes
Butternut squash and goat’s cheese tart, lemon and thyme butter sauce, vegetables, potatoes (v)
Dessert – Vanilla crème brûlée (v)

Bank is in a busy area of bars and restaurants and also has a bar itself, so you may choose to go there before the meal at 8pm. You may choose to travel to Bank by taxi or train (from the University station to New Street (Grand Central) and a short walk) or you may choose to drive. There is pay and display parking available at Brindley Place in a multi-storey car park.

Accommodation is available on campus here.

Alternatively, the Edgbaston campus is only a short distance by public transport from the city centre and there are many options for accommodation in the centre. Delegates to previous EDIT colloquia have stayed at the Pentahotel in the city centre.

The conference will take place at the Edgbaston campus.
