Conference Social Events

There will be a full programme of social events at the Communication Matters International Conference, and delegates will be able to enjoy a glass or two of their favourite tipple in the bar which will open until late.

All delegates are invited to drinks at the Communication Matters Exhibition Opening & Drinks Reception from 18.00-19.00 on Sunday in the Exhibition Hall (Parkinson Building), followed by a buffet dinner (at 19.30) and entertainment from 21.00 (both in the Refectory). 

On Monday evening there will be a Drinks Reception (18.30-19.15) with music on the University Concourse followed by a Conference Dinner with further entertainment. We are lucky to have our disco DJ, Bradley Wattmuff, back again.

Rock & Roll


Conference Dinner optional Fancy Dress: The Trustees and many others wear fancy dress for this event. The theme for 2018 is #CMrocks! We're imagining fancy dress with everything from geologists and archaeologists to Rock & Roll, Glam Rock, Rockabilly, etc. so come and join in the fun!

On the final day the Alan Martin Award for contribution to the Arts will be presented.
