Frequently asked questions

Will I be put ‘on the spot’ or made to answer questions?

No!  In the afternoon session participants will have the opportunity to answer some of the questions in ‘The Relationship Minefield programme’ (writing down their answers) and then, as individuals or with their partners, they have the option to share their answers with their partner at the time – or when they get home.

Will there be any refreshment breaks in the day?

Yes.  There will be tea and coffee on arrival and mid morning and a lunch break. Water will be available throughout the day.  Lunch is not catered for but we have compiled a list of options which we hope you will find helpful, below.  As the day ends at 4pm, there will not be an afternoon break.

Lunch Options

There are a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants in the area within a 10 minute walk of the Crowne Plaza.  We hope that you find the list below a helpful starting point.

There are also three small parks, all within a 5 minute walk of the venue, which, if you are bringing your own lunch, (and the weather is fine!) might be your preferred option.  These are also listed below.
