New Venue for Continuum 2008

Well we will have a brand spanking new venue for Continuum 2008 on the Friday 1st to Monday 4th August 2008.
The New Hall [also known as the John Foster Hall] Manor Road, Oadby, Leicester, LE2 2LG, is part of the University of Leicester’s halls of residence. 

Completed in October 2006, this is a brand new building with modern conference facilities.

The Continuum Committee had a site meeting this weekend where we had a good look around at the venue to check its suitability for our needs.
The good thing is that we will have a greater number of en suite bedrooms to offer our membership along with more conference space to use for gaming rooms.

The conference organisers at the University of Leicester have sent us these publicity photos of the venue and they do look fantastic!
I am certainly looking forward to seeing the new venue so expect more photographs as I snap away.
