Reading Outside the Box

Dr WhoJoin us on Monday 14th November 2016 at the inspiring and creative venue of the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay for our one-day conference Reading Outside the Box.

Packed with fantastic speakers and sessions, the conference will focus on strategies and ideas around reading for pleasure and its proven wide-ranging impact on children and young people. “Children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers”, according to research from the Institute of Education. Of the many benefits we gain from reading, it is also a proven stress-relief and contributing factor in promoting our well-being and mental health!

Held at the Doctor Who Experience which is a custom-built exhibition and corporate function space located a stone's throw from the BBC studios in Cardiff Bay where Doctor Who is filmed. We will be occupying the private function room on the first floor as well as the exhibition space itself, where delegates will be able to immerse themselves in our keynotes and workshops amid the collection of extraordinary props and artefacts from over 50 years of this extraordinarily creative programme.

Earlybird rate (booked by Friday 30th September 2016): SLA Members £95 / Non-Members £155
Thereafter SLA Members £105 / Non-Members £165
