The conference banquet will be held on the evening of Thursday, 14 July 2016 at the Blackcountry landmark, The Crooked House, so named after mining subsidence in the nineteenth century caused it to slide four feet lower on one side:
The building was transformed from a farmhouse into a public house and first named Syden House (‘sidden’ = dialect for ‘slanted’) and later Glynn House before being condemned in 1940. Reinforced with buttresses and made safe, the pub was salvaged from the wrecking ball and remains a going concern, with an excellent restaurant serving local dishes with a flair.
Please visit the Registration page to book your place for the Banquet. Coach transportation to and from The Crooked House will be provided as part of the package.
