The Aber Conference 2019

CATERING

For that extra touch of luxury, breakfast, lunch and evening meals can be bought at the University restaurant, without needing to book. Meals are great value, generally costing around £5 or £6.

HISTORY TRIP

For an extra £15, you can book onto our guided history trip which takes place on Monday, and will visit Neuadd-Lwyd near Aberaeron, from where the gospel was first taken to Madagascar.  The history trip will also visit Llangeitho, one of the centres of the Methodist Revival in Wales.

SPORTS FACILITIES

The University boasts excellent sports facilities, available to conference-goers at a discounted rate. These include a swimming pool, gym, squash courts, sports hall and an all-weather pitch. We organise a conference sports tournament, which is open to everyone aged 12 and over.

THE LOCAL AREA

There’s plenty to do in and around Aberystwyth, including the beach, coastal path, Constitution Hill, theatre, and even a steam railway. For more information, visit www.aberystwyth.org.uk/attractions 

MINIBUS

We run a free minibus between the sea-front and the University before and after the main meetings, and between the station and the University on both Saturdays. It’s available for all conference-goers, but we give priority to those who struggle with mobility.

LIVE-STREAMING & WIFI

All the Bible Readings and evening preaching meetings are live-streamed over the internet. All you need is a phone, tablet or laptop with an internet connection — high-speed WiFi is provided free throughout the campus.

ACCESSIBILITY

Most accommodation is on the first or second floor. If you’re unable to use stairs, please let us know when you book, and we will do our best to accommodate you on the ground floor. Accommodation is 10-20 minutes’ walk from our venues and is likely to include inclines. There is a free car-park approximately 100m from the main hall.
