      Dear all

      This is a final reminder that booking for the Map Curators' Group Annual
      Workshop is open and that the Early Bird Discount ends on 1 August -
      just a few days away - when prices increase quite dramatically. Spend
      that extra money on buying maps instead!

      The Map Curators’ Group (MCG) of the British Cartographic Society will
      hold its Annual Workshop in County Durham on Tuesday 5 September 2017
      followed by a visit to Durham County Record Office on the morning of
      Wednesday 6 September. You do not need to be a member of MCG to attend.

      THEME: "Unfolding the map: presenting your map collection to new audiences"

      The Workshop is followed by the MCG Annual Business Meeting and the
      Helen Wallis Memorial Lecture. This will be given by Philip Hatfield
