All events are FREE and everyone is welcome.
Venue: Northumbria University, Newcastle. It’s walkable from the rail station (about 20 minutes) or the closest metro stop is Haymarket.
Events on both Friday and Saturday happens in Lipman Building Room 121 and/or very nearby. You can get in via Lipman itself, or via the Squires Building entrance on Sandyford Road (take the lift or the stairs to the first floor, turn left, and walk for ages). We’ll strew signs everywhere.
