Hidden Earth – 2018 @ Churchill academy and sixth form
Sep 21 – Sep 23 all-day

From the HE website.

Hidden Earth is the name for the British Cave Research Association’s (BCRA’s) annual caving conference.

This weekend-long event is a friendly, educational, inspiring and social gathering of hundreds of cavers from across the UK and overseas.

The weekend is packed with lectures, with two or three parallel sessions running both days. Topics include new and old exploration from the UK and overseas as well as workshops covering cave science, research, technology and photography. There are competitions, games, videos and a trade hall with caving equipment vendors from across Europe selling their latest products. We also have our own bar (with excellent beer) and conference dinner with entertainment on the Saturday night to make this a great social occasion.

This is the premium opportunity for cavers from across the UK and overseas to get together, celebrate caving, and be enthused about British cave exploration and research.
