OPEN DAY 2019


Just say yes to Cardiff

The Nystagmus Network is delighted to announce the destination and spectacular venue for this year’s Open Day on Saturday 28 September.

The Principality Stadium, Cardiff

Join us in the Millennium Lounge for this year’s inspirational talks and presentations and meet up with adults, parents, children and young people affected by nystagmus over lunch on the Riverside Terrace.

We have secured an incredible line up of keynote speakers, guest presenters, researchers, clinicians, our education advocates and benefits adviser, plus an expert on driving and nystagmus from the DVLA, to make sure that each and every one of our delegates gets the most out of their day with us.

Our keynote speaker to introduce Open Day is entrepreneur, Daniel Williams. Our headline speaker to round off the day is singer songwriter, Ben Haynes. We shall also be joined by the author of the 2019 children’s book on nystagmus, Nadine Neckles.

Researchers, academics and clinicians working in the field of nystagmus research, diagnostics and treatment from Cardiff, Leicester, London, Plymouth and Southampton will be there. Hear first hand about the very latest developments and join them in the Research HUB to chat with them one to one, try out the latest equipment and ask them anything you like.

For parents, there’s a ‘make and take’ workshop with Gwyn McCormack from Positive Eye. Gwyn will show you how to help your child develop vision and learning using simple household objects.

Priority booking for members only opens on 3 June. Member places are free of charge.

Space is limited. Any remaining places, after free member places have been allocated, will go on general sale on 1 July. Ticket prices are £32 per adult, £10 per child.
