2019 Annual Meeting

LONDON 2019

Welcome to London 2019, the Central Council’s annual weekend which this year takes place at Goldsmiths College, London SE14 6NW between Friday 6th and Sunday 8th September.
 
The programme is open to all ringers and I hope you will find a great deal to interest you, whether it is the social evening on Friday 6th September, the chance to come and discuss the Council’s work on Saturday 7th September, the Mini Roadshow, exhibition and speaker events taking place on Sunday 8th September, or the opportunity to visit St. Paul’s Cathedral and ring at some iconic London churches.
 
There is no charge to take part in the Council’s annual meeting on Saturday 7th September and no charge for ringers under the age of 18 to attend the Mini Roadshow on Sunday 8th September.

Elsewhere we have done our best to keep costs at reasonable levels and there is a registration fee of £12 for those over 18 attending the Mini-Roadshow on Sunday 8th September to offset some of the costs of organising the event.

To register, simply use the link below.  If you plan to come for more than one day, you can also find below details of nearby accommodation.

On behalf of the Central Council I look forward to welcoming you to Goldsmiths and hope that you find it an informative and inspiring weekend.

David Kirkcaldy
Deputy President , Central Council
Chair of the London 2019 Organising Committee.
