Arriving by train
The nearest train station is Stoke-on-Trent. On arrival at Stoke train station, if you want to catch the bus, the stop is at the other side of the road from the station, to the left as you exit the station building. You want the 25 to Keele. This bus takes about 45 minutes but there is a bus stop just outside Keele Hall, so it is convenient. There is a student discount on the fare if you have a valid student card. Alternatively you can take a taxi. There are black cabs outside the station but a cheaper option is Roseville Taxis – 01782 613456 – or you can download the Roseville app. Uber has recently arrived in Stoke so there may be Ubers around.

Arriving by car
The postcode for your sat. nav. is ST5 5BG. There is parking in Keele Hall courtyard, or, if that fills up, in C13, Lindsay Q, and Plot 7. You will need a parking permit to park on campus, which I will send when confirming your place.

Refreshments and lunch
We are providing refreshments in the morning and afternoon, and a free buffet lunch. The lunch is a combination of sandwiches, salads, and desserts. Please let me know if you have any dietary

The Staff Common Room Bar will be open at the close of the conference if you’d like a beer, wine, or soft drink before you leave. It is also in Keele Hall, so we don’t even need to leave the building. SCR members take it in turns to volunteer behind the bar on Friday nights. This means the atmosphere is fun and the drinks are cheap. Please join us if you can!<
