|Open Day - Saturday 5 October 2013|
Our 2013 Open Day will again be held at The Marlborough School just outside Woodstock.
As usual it will run from 10am to 4pm.
This venue has a generous flat exhibition area and ample car parking. The accessibility has been appreciated, and remarked upon, by both exhibitors and visitors alike.
The Open Day will feature the usual assortment of visiting Societies, publishers, dealers in second hand books and postcards, and the like. Our own Society's range of transcripts and search services will be available for consultation, whilst we will also be manning a beginners' helpdesk. Additionally, there will be computing demonstrations, which will give advice on such things as which genealogical software package to choose, and the use of the internet in family history.
The stands will be spread across both the Marlborough Enterprise Centre (MEC) Hall and the adjoining Sports Hall.
Admission to the Open Day is free, as is the on-site car

|How to get to the Marlborough Enterprise Centre|
By Bus from Oxford
If you take this option, get off the bus outside Blenheim Palace gates
By Car from the North-West (A44)
It is possible to turn left in Woodstock onto Hensington Road and take the second right. After a short distance the MEC is on your left and the car park on your right just before the pedestrian crossing. However, this route involves narrow roads and unsigned turns, so we recommend that you drive through Woodstock, turn left at the A4095 roundabout and then follow the directions below.
By Car from the South
From the South-West (A4095) go straight ahead at the A44 roundabout.
By car from the North-East (A4260, A4095)
Turn right from the A4095 into Shipton Road (signed Hensington) and then follow as above.
|On-site Car Parking|
The car parking areas in use will depend on the weather conditions at thee time (and over the previous few days). One is just across the road from the MEC but we will hopefully be using the parking areas on the same side as the school. Watch out for signs as you approach the school.
Some disabled parking is available immediately in front of the MEC itself,
It will be possible to get close to the hall early in the day for unloading,
and at the end of the day for loading up again.
