Offers and Discounts around Bury St Edmunds

Thanks to the kind support of local businesses, we're pleased announce that for the weekend of the congress, entrants will be eligible for several discounts around Bury St Edmunds. To access most of these discounts you will simply need to present the discount card proving you (or one of your party) have entered the congress. These will be available at the event. You are unlikely to be able to use these offers in conjunction with others at the same establishment.

Your feedback about this would be much appreciated. Please email Steve Lovell (congress secretary) with your thoughts.
