#BrewEdPreston Volume 2
Saturday 28th SEPTEMBER 2019
A Grassroots Education Conference
Guest Speakers include:
Lunch is included in the price of the ticket (BUTTER PIE & HOTPOT)
#BrewEd is about debate and about breaking down silos. It’s about listening to people you wouldn't usually hear from, whether that’s because they’re from a different sector of education or maybe because they have a different political or pedagogical philosophy. We look to be challenged. We don’t do sponsorship and we don’t do product placement. No one makes a profit. Rule of thumb: if there’s a goody bag on the seat it’s not in the spirit of #BrewEd as Ed and Daryn set it up all those years ago.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Walk / Cycle from the Railway Station.
Preston Railway Station – Leave by the main entrance, going past the ticket office and through the taxi rank. When you reach the junction with Fishergate Hill at the top of the ramp, turn left, heading down the hill.
South Meadow Lane is the seventh road on your left. At the junction of South Meadow Lane/Fishergate Hill, turn left. The Casa Ceramica tile shop is on the corner. Continue along South Meadow Lane, past the Cricketers Arms and the Hindu Temple - the road here now bends to the right and then to the left.
Keep walking ahead, past the Cricket Club on your left and the BAC Sports Ground on your right. We are located at the end of the road, next to the Railway Bridge and entrance to Miller Park.
