It's not 100% confirmed, but looking very likely that the third annual Bartitsu School of Arms and Physical Culture will be held at the Beamish Living History Museum near Newcastle, UK during mid-September.
The museum includes a full, working reconstruction of a town high street circa 1900:
... complete with tramcars and folks pedaling around on penny farthing bicycles, etc.
If it goes ahead at this location, the School of Arms will probably feature a half-day tour of the museum on Friday, followed by two full days of Bartitsu cross-training with a small international team of instructors, including a buffet meal, socializing and lectures in an authentic Edwardian-era pub on Saturday night.
More as it comes to hand ...

We're nutting out the details on the Bartitsu Forum YahooGroup - http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/Bartitsu_Forum/ . The event will be widely promoted when it's 100% confirmed (I'm guessing in about one month), but you'd be welcome to join the Forum in the meantime.

Looks like it would be a fabulous time.

I hope so. We try to build "added value" in to the School of Arms events, in keeping with the funky old-world Bartitsu vibe. The first conference was held in a Victorian warehouse in London and included a visit to the site of Barton-Wright's original club and a meal at the Sherlock Holmes restaurant. Last year's SoA was held at the 19th-century styled Forteza gym in Chicago and included a visit to the historic Hegeler-Carus mansion gymnasium in La Salle, IL.

Edited out a question that you had already answered.
