Event description: 

The Conference provides a great opportunity for bookbinders of all levels to see demonstrations by knowledgeable experts in a wide range of fields.  Amateurs and those with less experience will find inspiration and encouragement; professionals will gain new ideas.   If you have not been to a Conference before, you will find it easy to make new friends and to talk to the speakers and other top-level binders. You will find them approachable and always willing to discuss bookbinding matters with you.

Competition books will be on display throughout for you to view and enjoy.

The Trade Fair suppliers will be attending with bookbinding materials, tools and books for sale.

Please see flyer for Speakers' information.

Conference 2019 brings an exciting change of venue for us, giving a chance for you to visit the ancient Roman City of Bath. This venue is also a new construction with up to-date lecture theatres and accommodation.

The conference will be hosting lectures and the Suppliers Fair in a new format; more integrated into the conference function. The restaurant and evening venues are alongside the main conference halls, as are the accommodation blocks. All are on the same level and there are four lifts within the conference centre for ease of access.

There is ample car parking space at the campus and there are three ATM machines in close proximity.

The Society’s Annual General Meeting will take place on the Thursday evening before dinner.
