I've just realised I've been very misleading.
The first day of the conference (Friday) IS being held in the Seven

It is true that the Seven Stories archive is housed in a different part of
Newcastle, but that's not where the conference is being held. Please
forgive my confusion, and ignore my previous message to the list!
