How much does it cost to attend?
Nothing! The event is free but booking helps us cater for numbers and ensures attendees receive updates.
Can I book a place for someone else?
Yes, you can if you have their consent to do so.  You will need their email address though so we can contact them directly with any important updates.

Can I book by phone?
It really helps if you can book via Eventbrite but it is possible to book by phone.

What if the cost of travel is a barrier to attending?
Please get in touch. The Library Campaign may be able to help out with travel costs. UNISON members should contact their local branch about paying for their travel.

Can I bring promotional material for my campaign/library group?
Delegates are welcome to bring along flyers or brochures relating to library campaigns or friends of library groups.  A table will be provided to display these.

We cannot accommodate any stands, displays, advertisements, items for sale or other material. If you are unsure, please get in touch.

Can I bring my own food and drink to consume at the venue?
No. We will be providing tea, coffee and water as part of the event, at no cost to those attending, but it is a condition of booking that any food and drink not provided as part of the booking is not consumed on site.

Wesley’s Cafe, on the lower ground floor, offers a selection of food and beverages and a small cafe is situated at street level.
