Schedule of the 2011 Unconvention

Introduction

The committee are very pleased to provide a schedule for the Nottingham Unconvention weekend in 2011. This schedule will be updated and amended in the run up to the weekend, as more details about the event become available, although it’s now fairly stable.

In addition to the activities listed below, we are hoping to organise some events led by local bookcrossers during Friday and Sunday for those who are staying on for longer.
