400 hedgehog fans will descend upon Telford International Centre in Shropshire for a full day jam packed with fascinating talks by experts and scientists (mostly funded by BHPS & PTES) who are working on hedgehog projects.  It will be a wonderful tour of the issues facing hedgehogs in 21st century Britain.  There will be trade stands selling pretty much all the hedgehoggery you could think of and plenty of opportunity to mix with fellow hedgehog fans!
