Thank you for considering attending, it is our pleasure to host the workshop at The Bustard Tea Rooms). This venue is remote but only 5 minutes from the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge so a car is recommended.

Closer to the time I will get a WhatsApp group set up so you can make any joint arrangements/ get involved in the hype 😊
