...and if it is like last time, finishes shortly thereafter :)

I went to the last open day, and it was excellent; see http://www.eevblog.com/forum/contests/uk-diamond-light-synchrotron-open-day-nov-11/msg1347217/#msg1347217

Booking: http://www.diamond.ac.uk/Home/Events/Inside-Diamond---Public-Open-Days/Saturday-24th-March-2018.html

I am pleased to tell you that registration for our Inside Diamond open day on Saturday March 24th 2018 will open tomorrow (Wednesday 7th February) at 4:00pm. From that time you will be able to click here and follow the directions to register.

 

When you have booked, and had a message on the screen confirming this, you should receive an email confirmation within a couple of hours, this will be sent to the email address that you registered with. If you do not receive this then please contact us (diamondcomms@diamond.ac.uk ) as it may mean your booking is not complete and your places not secure.

There is usually a high demand for places for these events and they are strictly limited. As a consequence we recommend booking quickly as we operate on a first-come first served basis. If you are unable to get a place we will be running more events later in 2018.

We look forward to seeing you.

Kind regards,

Diamond Communications.

I forgot all about it but managed to sneak in (@16:05) for an EARLY 09:30 slot.  Better set the alarm clock as it is a reasonable trek for us.

The Pendon Museum is nearby; make it a day out. BTW, the flickr photos are better than the website's photos.

Beat me to it!

No I won't be going again; that would take the opportunity away from somebody that hasn't seen it.

But I can highly recommend a visit - it is as good as TNMoC, for the same reason: you can talk to knowledgable people.
