AGM York 2018

The 14th AGM in 2018 will be held at the Park Inn by Radisson in York on the weekend of the 19th – 21st October, hosted by the Central Region. This modern hotel is situated on the banks of the River Ouse in the centre of York. All the major attractions within York are within walking distance, making this an ideal venue for those wishing to make the most of their time here.

The weekend will follow the usual format with a drinks reception and meal on the Friday night for those making the most of the opportunities. During the day on Saturday you will be free to explore your selected sites before returning to the hotel and preparing for the gala dinner during the evening. The Sunday morning will be devoted to the AGM before Sunday lunch for those wishing to delay their return home. You are welcome to extend your stay and we will arrange accommodation for the Sunday night for those who wish to do so.
