UKPON Autumn Conference 2019

   Friday 11th October - Sunday 13th October 2019
                      Hosted by Doncaster Pride


On behalf of UKPON and Doncaster Pride, we are looking forward to welcoming you to the Autumn conference to be held over the weekend of 11th -13th October in Doncaster. 

We have worked closely with our local supporters to make sure we can give you a great conference and a great weekend. 

The conference will take place at The Danum Mercure Hotel in the heart of the town centre, a 60-room hotel that we have reserved exclusively for the conference delegates. We’ve secured great deals so as to make the conference as affordable as possible for us all to attend. 

We’ve got some great sessions planned for you and also a spectacular event for Saturday evening hosted by Doncaster Council in the beautiful Georgian Mansion House, again in the centre of town, this dinner has been subsidised by Visit Doncaster and will be free for all attendees. 

We’ve also planned a great night immediately after the dinner with cabaret, so never let it be said our lack of LGBT+ venues has stopped us having a great party. 

We have special rates on the hotel and we’re keeping the cost per delegate per day at £5 for lunch and refreshments.

We hope you can join us for what we hope will be a memorable conference.
