Alas, it's a real conference, on (groan) staff development, without a glass of warm white wine in sight and no prospect of Nick Tate strutting his stuff on the dancefloor. The Hippodrome is simply one of the few places big enough for 450 people.

"It's not a jamboree," sighs one official. "It ends at 4.30pm."
