No need to book - just turn up, and bring friends if you wish.

Hope to see you there.

Two important notices:
1. We haven't finalised the contract yet, IF YOU ARE THINKING OF COMING, PLEASE EXPRESS PREFERENCE FOR ENSUITE/NON ENSUITE ROOMS ETC. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, THIS WEEK IF POSSIBLE - so that we can book the appropriate number of rooms.

2. No conference venue is perfect - the big problem in Oxford will be parking which is very expensive there. The university generally advises people to come by public transport - which in turn means that we will have to plan carefully which lutes to bring. If a few individuals with big cars are prepared to give lifts from their region to fellow participants and a carfull of lutes, then we may well pay overnight parking fees on your behalf. PLEASE SAY IF YOU ARE PREPARED FOR YOUR CAR TO BE A 'LUTE CARRIER'
