Society of Ancients Conference 2017

Society of Ancients Conference

When: 14-15 October 2017

Where: Chesford Grange Hotel Kenilworth

Cost: £189 for two days, including Saturday night accommodation and dinner

The Society of Ancients Conference 2017 will take place over the weekend 14th and 15th October, at the same venue as the 2016 Conference, the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

We are limited to 40 places, so after the success of the 2016 Conference you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment!

Those who attended this year will know that we like everyone to get involved! We also need volunteers to run a session. Sessions can either be a presentation to the Conference on a subject, which with a subsequent discussion will last around an hour, or else can be running games, rules workshops, or anything else you may choose to come up with! Please send your ideas to Richard Lockwood at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  In addition, even if you are unable to make the conference in person, we would welcome submissions of presentations and/or papers either by post or electronically which we will do our utmost to get presented at the conference.

The cost for the weekend is £189, which includes the two full days at the Conference, buffet lunch both days, the Conference Dinner on the Saturday evening, bed and breakfast Saturday night, and teas and coffees, biscuits and cakes etc throughout the days. Single day attendance, including the lunch, is available for £45 per day.

For those arriving on the Friday evening we have negotiated a Conference bed and breakfast rate of £105, which should also be booked in advance though us.

Because the Society is required to pay the venue in advance for the Conference we will require full payment four weeks before the Conference. However, in order to reserve your place we will initially be taking £45 deposits, either by the Society website PayPal route or by cheques made out to the Society of Ancients and sent to the Treasurer. These deposits are non-returnable unless we are able to find someone else to attend in your place.


Balances may be paid to the Society either electronically by using the add to cart buttons at the bottom of this page or by writing to the Society Treasurer at


Blackheath Lane

enclosing a cheque payable to The Society of Ancients.
