The latest batch of invoices have been sent on 28 May. Please check your inboxes. Payment is due by 31 May.
We are trying to cut down on admin time and personal communications, hence this page. However we do sometimes need to get in touch with individuals. Please make sure you are receiving our emails by authorising our email address - firstname.lastname@example.org in your inbox so that things don't go to spam or junk mail folders.

Please don't forget to join our lovely Facebook group - settings are open for a limited time before we put it back to being secret. In this group you will find a lovely community full of kindred spirits and people who just want to be friends with you! Click HERE to access and ask to join. The Facebook group is a safe space where people can discuss corsetty conundrums privately and liaise over conference logistics - what's going on before/after/during and things like lift sharing, travelling together etc., If you can't find the group, please send an email - we sometimes have to make the group secret due to spam requests! PLEASE if you have a pseudonym, let me know by email. I simply will not approve any requests to join unless I know for sure who you are. If your name doesn't match your payment details, then you will be declined unless you have told me by email, differently.
There are still a few slots available - please book yours HERE
Accommodation either side of the conference.
The code for Friday and Sunday night rooms either side of the conference is KX47355
In order to access room availability, visit https://www.jesus.ox.ac.uk/visitors/accommodation/bed-breakfast and type in the code KX47355 in the promotional code box, before selecting dates.
If you require both the Friday and Sunday nights, you should do this as two separate bookings (the Saturday night is not available online as it is reserved to the main event!).
Please note the rooms only show to us once the code has been typed in
Food at Jesus
All people with special diets are catered for, breakfast lunch and dinner. For all meals except Saturday night dinner, you collect food from the servery (this will become apparent when you get to Jesus). Gluten free, and vegans and other special diets must ASK for their food as it is kept under the counter so that you are guaranteed a meal. Please don't forget to do this and if any problems, tell one of the team (Julia/Gerry/Alison) who will sort it out for you.
Follow the Vikings!
