You are welcome to join us for an informal dinner after the seminar, at Manos, 105 Walton Street. We have arranged a ‘special menu’ at the individual cost of £8.99, which includes main course and a drink (wine, beer or a soft drink). This should be an enjoyable social occasion so we hope you will also join us after the seminar. Please let us know if you are planning to attend the dinner so we can confirm numbers with the restaurant (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com)
