Update 24 July. The draft programme can now be seen HERE. Please note that it is SUBJECT TO CHANGE!

The formal programme will be held on Sat and Sun 30th and 31st July. The presentations will start on Sat 30 Jul at 10am in the Clandon suite (same room as last year).

Last year, quite a few delegates arrived on Friday afternoon/evening and we held an impromptu social gathering away from the hotel. We plan to do the same this year, and also hold a beginners session on Friday afternoon, probably starting at approx 4pm.

All the ‘normal’ events will be there, eg Saturday night Gala dinner, AMSAT Shop, GB4FUN, auction, raffle, etc, etc.

All bookings and payments MUST BE MADE direct to the hotel, and you are advised to book early, as the hotel will only reserve accommodation for us for a limited period (up to 9th July). The prices are the same as last year, ie £128, which includes attendance at the presentations, overnight accommodation on Sat night, the Sat Gala dinner, breakfast on Sunday morning, and unlimited tea and coffee during the two days.

There is also a two day package, same as above, but with accommodation on Friday night and breakfast on Sat morning in addition. The cost of this package is £193. If you do not wish to stay overnight in the hotel, the there is a day package for £25 per day (£10 on Friday). Cost of Gala dinner on Sat on its own, £20. B and B for Sunday night £75. (None of the above packages/prices include lunch).

All bookings and payments must be made with the hotel.
