Conference Dinner
The Photon10 Conference Dinner will be held at the Southampton Guildhall, the former town hall of Southampton which is now in use as a venue for cultural events. In 1937 a brand new state-of-the-art Guildhall, built in the classical style of the 1930s, was opened by the Earl of Derby; it is today part of a Grade 2* listed building.

Incorporated into the building of the Guildhall was the John Compton Dual Console Pipe Organ, a unique instrument that took two years to build. The organ survived WWII without a scratch even when an unexploded bomb landed right in the centre of the hall. It is still in working order and played at Civil and graduation ceremonies!
