We plan to hold a Research day on a similar format to that held in London in January. 10 minute presentations on new projects or work in progress are especially welcome as well as a limited number of 20 minute papers on completed projects where researchers can report on their outcomes.

All those wishing to present should contact Geoff Blackwell (contact details below). Papers are welcome from all researchers, however in the event of over-subscription preference will be given to those who did not present in January.

This is a valuable opportunity, especially for new researchers, to present in a friendly and supportive environment. 

Bromley House is the location the first daguerreotype studio in the Midlands, opened by Alfred Barber in October 1840, and first time visitors will be able to enjoy a brief tour of the premises.

Those attending should provide their own lunch. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day. There are numerous options to purchase sandwiches etc. within a few minutes walk of the Library.

ACCESS: Bromley House is a 18th century building and as yet there is no lift. The building is currently unsuitable for those unable to use stairs.

TRAVEL: Arrival by train is recommended. Use the Tram from the railway station to Old Market Square (two stops) and the Library is about 100 metres from The Square. If you prefer to drive the nearest Car Park is at Mount Street (NG1 6HG).

BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL Free for presenters, £5 for observers.

Places limited to 25 attendees
