The Hawarden OT in the NT Conference- 2015

From the Conference organizer-

I am writing to confirm the arrangements for the next Annual Seminar on the Use of the OT in the NT, to be held at Gladstone’s Library Hawarden (, from the evening of Wednesday 25th to lunch time on Friday 27th March 2015. The library have reserved 20 rooms for us in the first instance, so if you are able to participate in this year’s seminar, please contact the booking office directly to book your room by telephone on 01244 532350 or by email to; please note that you cannot reserve your place via the online booking system, as we have made a group booking.

You can then make your individual arrangements for en-suite or ground floor rooms etc. or book to stay extra nights, and will be charged accordingly, but please let the staff know when booking that you are part of the OT in the NT Seminar group, so that they can allocate you to one of our reserved rooms. The overall cost will be in the region of  £175, depending on what “extras” you opt for, and a small deposit will be required at the booking stage. Please let me know also when you have booked so that I can keep an up-to-date list of confirmed seminar participants.

Offers of papers are welcome, so please send me the proposed title and a short abstract by 10th December 2014. I’ll confirm the papers selected in mid-January, and provide further details of the timings and running order then. There is no one overall theme to this year’s conference, so all offers of papers which relate to the general field of the OT in the NT will be considered.

I shall shortly be advertising the seminar more widely (through the BNTS mailing list etc.) so please do pass on the dates and details of the conference to anyone you know who may be interested in joining us.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at Hawarden in March,

Best wishes,
