This will be a very special event with privileged excursions to the Mary Rose, Porchester Castle, Titchfield Barn (which is now a theatre), Titchfield Abbey along with the conference dinner being held at Fort Nelson, which includes a private tour of the Fort.  There will be a wide range of other talks and other special events including a visit to the defences of Southampton.

The conference will start on Friday 31 July at 14.00 (registration from 12.00) and closes at 12.00 on Monday 3 August 2015.  Please see the draft programme for further information.

There are a number of packages available with costs starting from as little as £100.  The complete package, costing £325 (early bird rate - before 30 June) includes all en-suite accommodation, catering, all sessions and all the privileged visits.  Accommodation for the conference is located at  Glen Eyre Halls, University of Southampton.  However for those attending the conference as a non-resident and wish to make your own accommodation arrangements, please do see our list of local hotels/guest houses.

There is a discount available for members of the Guild of Battlefield Guides and The Battlefield Trust, and should you wish to benefit from this discount, but are not yet a member please do visit their websites and sign up.

We are hoping to obtain further student bursaries and further information will be circulated in due course.
