    1. I am interested in the symposium. As I am a student of University of Bristol, I should take a coach to participate in the symposium. Would you let me know when the symposium starts and ends on 29th and 30th. The information will help me to reserve coach tickets.

    2. Would you let me know which coach station is nearest from George Eliot Building and Alan Berry Building?
