INFORMATION FOR LECTURERS
Information regarding transport and equipment for speakers
The nearest station is in Darlington. Virgin Trains East Coast provide a regular service from London Kings Cross. The transit time from the station to the meeting place is about 10 minutes. If travelling by train, speakers are asked to book their tickets well in advance in order to obtain a discount. Speakers travelling by car should note that the postcode for our venue is DL2 1RH
Computer Hardware and Software
We advise speakers to bring their presentation as a Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentation.
If your presentation is stored on a memory stick, we are happy for you to use our laptop, which runs Windows 10 and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010.
Please note that whilst our system can run earlier versions of Microsoft Office PowerPoint, it cannot accomodate either Apple or Adobe Presenter.
If you prefer to bring your own laptop, we have a VGA lead long enough to reach from your laptop on stage to the projector on the floor of the hall.
