New Adventures... takes place on 20th January 2011, which is some way off, but we know you like to get an idea of what is happening, when, and with whom. So, as a matter of common courtesy, here's the event schedule as it looks right now.

Conference guide

Upon registration, all attendees will receive a conference brochure featuring the exact schedule and further information.

Subject to change

As we formulate the topics and themes, it may be that we adjust times slightly, or move some speakers up or down the bill to aid narrative. We're sure that's fine with you.

Other events?

Naturally, we'll be hosting a comfortable after-party on the evening of the event. We're also formalising plans with some local creative types for the evening before (19th January) and will let you know about these as soon as we dare. One of these events sounds both exhilarating and frightening.

When you register, please let us know if you think you'll be around the evening before.
