Conference Dinner
The Conference Dinner will be held at the National Railway Museum. To mark the ACB's 60th Anniversary, we will be celebrating our own Diamond Jubilee with a glittering 'Black and Bling' theme. You are encouraged to dress in smart black and white, or add some 'bling' with your own sparkling outfit. Guests will enjoy their pre-dinner drinks wandering among some of the museum's remarkable exhibits in the Great Hall, before being seated in the Station Hall alongside extravagant royal carriages to enjoy a Yorkshire-themed meal with live entertainment.

A coach shuttle bus will run between the University and Museum.
