Swindon & District Talking Newspaper (STAN) is hosting the Talking News Federation (TNF) ninth national conference, from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 September 2013, at the Swindon Marriott Hotel.
Opening the event on Friday evening will be ‘An audience with the Rt. Hon. David Blunkett MP – getting to know the man’, which will be presented in conversation with Peter White MBE.
Following a welcome, next morning, from Lady Lansdowne, President of the Wiltshire Blind Association, the event continues with a series of presentations, workshops and demonstrations on both Saturday and Sunday.
