Venue Details

Location

Anglo-Continental Language School, The Pavilion Room29-35 Wimborne Road, BOURNEMOUTH, BH2 6NA

On previous occasions we have had feedback from delegates that they have found the Pavilion Room (where the training is being held) at Anglo Continental Language School hard to find.

Please do not go to the Student Services Reception, but go to the right of the building to the car park spaces that have been reserved for us (first come first served) - these will be sign posted. Then come through the wooden gate – this will also be sign posted and may be shut if it is windy, and walk down to the Pavilion where we will be waiting to greet you from 9.15am.

In the unlikely event that the car park barrier is down when you arrive you need to put in the code 1478A.
If the car park is full there is on street parking in the surrounding area.
