Members of the CfAS team were treated to a fabulous tour of the CERN facility by Glynn Kirby.  As well as going into the LHC control room, we saw Nb3Sn Rutherford cable winding, all the stages of full-scale Nb3Sn magnet manufacture and the magnet development lab.   The EUCAS conference social also took place on the CERN site at the cryogenic magnet testing station.  Here we saw the new Nb3Sn FRESCA2 magnet for high-field testing of new superconducting wires and cables, a developmental HTS insert coil using REBCO Roebel cable and 60m MgB2 superconducting link cables.
