A conference field excursion will be take place on Friday 6 July 2018: ‘Geology and the Games of Thrones’ with Geological Survey Northern Ireland (GSNI): £30 (numbers of participants are restricted to 30 due to coach size).

The field excursion will leave Belfast at 8.45 am from Elmwood Avenue Belfast, (Elmwood Building/Geography) returning no later than 6 pm.
