There will not be a formal conference dinner once again this year but a more informal and less exclusive event similar to last year's conference. Delegates with social event tickets will be able to enjoy the variety of world food stalls on offer which will set up on Thursday evening in the Hub building on the OU campus. There will be several different world cuisines on offer with a tasty selection of freshly made meals as well as soft drinks. There will also be a cash bar in the same building, offering for those who so wish, something alcoholic. Entertainment will be from a live local band playing from under a Marquee set out on the main Lawn while you eat, drink, mingle and even dance into the summer evening. Social event tickets are £10 each and this allows you to obtain a meal and soft drink combination from one of the world food stalls at the event. We regret that you will not be able to purchase more food than your provided portion, as the catering will be limited to the ticketed numbers. The ticket cannot be exchanged for alcohol which will be sold for cash only.
