If you are not a member, or you'd like to bring more people, additional tickets may be available for purchase. Non-members can also join us for free tickets to our regular events.

The keynote speaker will be Professor Gisli Gudjonsson CBE. Professor Gudjonsson is a Professor of Forensic Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry of King's College London. He is an internationally renowned authority on suggestibility and false confessions whose expert testimony was the basis for the convictions of the Birmingham Six and Guildford Four being overturned. He created the Gudjonsson suggestibility scale to measure how susceptible someone is to coercion during an police interrogation.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07739 904 858.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Yes, as long as it is transferred to another representative of your organisation. Please let us know about any changes so that we can ensure your delegate has a name badge.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It is helpful if you can bring your ticket with you as it helps with the registration process. However, if you do not bring the ticket you we'll just need your name.
What if I book but then can't make it?
Spaces are limited, and we want them all to count. It is very frustrating for members who have not been able to attend because all the places are booked, only to discover on the day that were spare spaces. Even though places at the event are free to members, they are not free to the charity, so please only book if you are committing to attending. No shows on the day and cancellations with less than two weeks notice may be subject to a charge of £45 to contribute to the costs incurred.
What are my transport options?
Trains: London Euston is directly opposite the venue. London Kings Cross St Pancras is approximately 15 minutes walk (0.7 miles).
Tube: Euston, Euston Square and Warren Street are all no more than 6 minutes walk from the venue.
Book train tickets as early as possible to secure the best rates. You can check prices now at http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/.
