Logistics information 

We look forward to seeing you for the first residential from 26th February - 1st March, 2019.

Arrival: Tuesday 26th February @ 4:00pm (please leave enough time to check in at Malmaison before sessions begin at 4:45pm. Coffee will be available from 4:30pm).

Finish: Friday 1st March @ 1:00pm (those on the train to London, this leaves enough time to return to the hotel, collect your bag and walk to the train station for your allotted train).

Dates & Timings



We will be based at etc. Venues (address below). There will be organised walks from the hotel to the venue each morning.

We will be staying at the Malmaison in Manchester City Centre:

NB: As stated in the accommodation email, we have your room held on a block. You do not need to do anything until you check in at which point you will supply your credit card details.


Please see below for suggested trains to and from London. For those arriving from elsewhere, please arrive at the hotel no later than 4pm in order to be able to check-in before the sessions begin. A member of the Forward Institute team will be at the station to greet everyone and point you in the right direction of the hotel.

This is an informal event and there is therefore no dress code for any of the events during the residential.
