Saturday lunch

This year we're taking a break from the norm and will be inviting attendees to explore Bristol for their lunch breaks. There are a number of great restaurants, cafes and other places to eat near to the School of Chemistry. We would recommend ...

There are plenty of other places as well so don't feel limited by these options! Just remember that you will not be able to bring your main meal back into the Chemistry building, so make sure you finish up in plenty of time for the afternoon's talks.

Sunday 2nd July - sprint day

The sprint day will take place at Lamp Bristol's offices in the centre of Bristol.

Getting here

We recommend travelling to the event by public. Bristol Temple Meads Station is conveniently located in the heart of the city, with bus links through to most of our venues. The number 1/2 buses both go from opposite the station to the city centre. Look out for the College Green stop for the Watershed, or The Triangle for the University.

Otherwise, it's a short, 15-20 minute walk to the Watershed, and a little further (up a hill!) to the University. If you'd prefer to drive, the Trenchard Street Car Park behind Colston Hall is the perfect place to park.
