Transcript METROPOLE HOTEL ENTRANCE TO HALLS FROM HOTEL —IAJ" B MAIN ENTRANCE " KINGS ROAD On a preliminary visit to the Metropole Conference Centre our Chairman went unaccountably missing for several hours. Unfortunately he eventually turned up - with some story of being lost in labyrinthine corridors which seemed to obey the dictates of a strange alien geometry, and of encountering several staircases on which he appeared to descend eternally. These plans are intended as a guide to the layout of the conference halls and hotel convention facilities and we hope it may prevent a similar fate befalling our members. If you should feel panic setting in at any stage, however, head for the main information office in the Churchill Room (K). Alternatively if you see someone about with a silly badge proclaiming them to be a SEACON RUNNER, try buttonholing them and asking them to point you in the right direction. They're our Gophers and they should have a reasonable grasp of the hotel geography. For timings of individual programme items and information on the various Shows, Exhibits, Functions, and Events you should of course consult your Pocket Programme. ART SHOW The main Art Show will be mounted in Hall 7 on the ground floor. There will be two art show auctions: 3.30-5.00pm on Saturday and on Sunday. Written bids may be made beforehand in the art show hall. Only a selection of the material on display will be offered for auction. Payment for purchased art may be in traveller's cheques in sterling, sterling cheques backed with a banker's card, or by cash. Cheques or cash in any other currency except sterling cannot be accepted. The art show awards will be made by popular vote and ballots will be available at the art show administration desk in Hall 7.

The hotel grew with the popularity of Brighton and during the 18th century became a well-known coaching Inn for travellers on their way to France. There are two bars - the spacious TETTERSELLS on the ground floor and the small, intimate 'below-decks' GALLEY BAR. THE BEDFORD HOTEL The Bedford Hotel is a modern, spacious luxury hotel. There are beautiful views of Brighton's seafront from the terrace lounges. The Bedford Restaurant offers an excellent table d'hote menu, and some original letters written by Charles Dickens to the first Bedford Hotel, which used to occupy this site, are displayed in the comfortable Dickens Bar. mm - vgEdd Underground parking is available for 100 vehicles. £t»S3 ■■■>"'■"'■■'•'■' , m'-' 49
