shiMMer 2019

shiMMer 2019 will be held on Saturday 23rd February at a central Birmingham venue.

This time it will be a one stop event. This means you will be able to stay at the venue. Once you’ve arrived you never have to leave, but if you do there are shops, pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance.

The plan so far, which is subject to change, is that we will have a Friday night social – probably at the same O’Neill’s pub as last time as that was so much fun and the food was fantastic and it was cheap!

Saturday we have two wonderful rooms at our disposal. The big room will hold all the authors and has a bar in it that will be OPEN! We will also be providing tea, coffee and water to everyone. There is plenty of food available at the venue and lots of nearby free space if people need a time out. The second room is also a really nice size and sound proofed! Perfect for concurrent events (yet to be decided).

At the end of the day once everyone has packed up and chilled out, there will be a gala dinner. Well, when we say ‘gala’ it won’t be outrageously extravagant, just lots of fun, a three course meal and easily affordable. Best of all is it’s at the venue.

We will confirm everything in due course – plans are changing all the time but we are very excited and will share it with you as soon as possible. Details of accommodation rates and party tickets will be announced during the year and all be be on a first come first served basis. Watch our FB page and website for details.
