Bookings are now being taken for the 2024 VRA Conference, which will take place in the Lichfield Suite at The Belfry on Thursday 10th October.

Due to exceptionally high demand, all of the remaining hotel bedrooms for the day of the conference (Thursday 10th October) have now sold out.

However, if you'd like to attend the event & stay for the evening meal/ overnight for the networking etc., we are now recommending the hotel below. But bear in mind that those staying at another hotel will still need to register & pay for entrance to the conference.

The night before.

Unfortunately, there are also no rooms available at The Belfry for the night before the conference (9th October) but there are plenty available at a nearby hotel.

Many of us will be staying at the nearby Lea Marston Hotel (https://leamarstonhotel.co.uk) & have already booked rooms.

It is close to The Belfry, has good on-line reviews and currently has 90 rooms rooms available for Wednesday 9th October.
