The University of Nottingham is a public research university, founded in 1881 and granted a royal charter in 1948. University Park Campus, located two miles from Nottingham City Centre, is set within 330 acres of rolling landscaped parkland. With a mix of stunning architecture, traditional features and modern facilities, this campus is the perfect venue for our birthday event. It is also where our inaugural conference took place 30 years ago.
We will be holding our Conference in the De Vere Orchard Hotel site.

As this is a single day conference no residential accommodation is required.

However, if you would like to stay at the De Vere Orchard, call them directly and ask for National Drama rates for Friday and Saturday. If you visit https://www.devere.co.uk/orchard/   and sign up for ‘Applause’, you may get a better rate.

There is also a Travelodge at nearby Wollaton Park.

Book through Eventbrite.
