So we shouldn't plan what's on what day until people have confirmed what
days they're coming? How will you decide when to turn up if you don't
know what day things are actually on?

The other thing to keep in mind is that the aim for the start on
Saturday is the afternoon. So it will be possible for people to turn up
on Saturday morning and still make the first talks, unlike occasions when
the opening has been first thing on the first proper morning.
