2015 conference

Just three months to go to this year’s conference, and some great speakers are lined up on the vital topic of treatment of Lyme disease. Our speakers are coming from far and wide, and we very much want to ensure that their voyages and the work they put into their presentations are worth their valuable time, so do please book your place soon!

Why not join the LDA team on Friday night for a relaxed start to the weekend, with friendly chats  over drinks (sponsored by Sunvil Holidays) and then supper with other attendees? (NB Immediate accommodation booking is required as our allocated rooms, in the new building in which the conference itself is held,  ‎have just been released and may be sold by the college to others if you are not quick off the mark.)

There will also be a supper with speakers and attendees on the Saturday night if that’s a better option for you; it’s  interesting to discuss the day’s events and talks with others, to quiz the speakers personally and to compare notes‎ with friends old and new.

Otherwise, day delegates are of course more than welcome too and we hope you will book soon so that we can notify the college of how many attendees we expect on Saturday‎ 12th September.

Having visited Murray Edwards – formerly New College – last September, I can tell you that it’s a lovely new venue for the LDA conference. There’s plenty of parking, a flat campus for ease of access, lifts from reception direct to the well-appointed rooms (with some ensuite and twin options) and beautiful flowers to be enjoyed in the gardens at that time of year.

The college is women-only and houses Europe’s largest collection of women’s art. The collection is open for viewing every day and can also be viewed on-line.

The college itself is easily accessible from the M11 and A14 if coming by car and is approximately an £8 to £10 taxi fare from Cambridge‎ railway station if you prefer to let the train take the strain. If you’d like a lift from your home, we can try (no promises, however) to put you in touch with people travelling from your neck of the woods.

So much time and effort goes into sourcing speakers, finding venues and putting the conference together – do please support these efforts, made on your behalf, by ‎joining us in Cambridge on the weekend of 12th September! We look forward to seeing you there.
