Hi all,

Unfortunately Boris Johnson has just announced a total lock-down of the UK, with a legal ban on social gatherings. These restrictions are for at least the next 3 weeks, but are very likely to continue in some form beyond that. This is a not exactly unpredictable evolution of the social isolation asked of us all over the last week or so.

This sadly means that the May LAN is now cancelled.

The Hotel is aware and has cancelled all booked rooms - you do not need to contact them individually to confirm this.

Even if the restrictions were somewhat eased by May (beyond the current 3 week period), with the severity of the current situation and the extent of advised social isolation prior to this development, we feel it would no longer be morally appropriate for us to hold a social gathering at this stage either way.

I hope you can appreciate that this is a decision mostly out of our hands.

We will be running an online-based event in place of the LAN. More details on that will come soon. Keep your eyes on the forums.

Cheers all,
LAN Admins & Council
