Back to the 80s Date Change

Following discussions with our venue, we have decided to put the event back two weeks to 24th October 2015. This is due to a number of factors but the main one being that there are few hotel rooms available in Manchester on the original date of 10th owing to the Rugby World Cup match being played in Manchester the same day.

This will be our only one day event in 2015 - so get your tickets!
