The gala dinner will be held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The gardens were designed in 1829 and opened to the public on June 11th 1832. There are four glasshouses which range from the exotic Tropical glasshouse, through to the Subtropical, Mediterranean and Arid houses. A large lawn is located in front of the glasshouses with a range of beds and shrubberies around its perimeter. Overall, the character is that of a Victorian public park with a bandstand set in 15 acres (6.1 ha) of landscaped greenery.

 

 

The reception and drink will open at 18:30 and the dinner will start at 19:00. Free coach services from the conference venue to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens will be provided on that day. The address of the gardens is shown as follows:
