  • This event HAS been postponed.

    Although we (and Tom) were willing to continue because of the minimal risk, events have overtaken us. Nexus has closed indefintely (as from 19/03/2020). More and more sources are advising that all non-essential travel cease. It is therefore with great reluctance that we have decided to postpone this event. We will update this website and send email to members when the situation changes.
