A new venture and in response to various suggestions from members, we have organised this Saturday evening meal, with guest speaker Bruce Lawson who has recently written an excellent book on Charles Rolls, at The Stratford Hotel, Arden Street, Stratford on Saturday 1st February 2014, 7pm. Some accommodation is available for members wishing to stay over.
Therefore, members can take their pick: join us for an evening meal with speaker, or choose to stay over and enjoy Stratford over a weekend.
We have chosen a Q Hotel, in a central location in order that members can enjoy all that Stratford has to offer. A small downside is that the hotel charge a £5 per 24 hour parking fee, whether you are an overnight guest or not. (You can always park elsewhere if you wish!)
This is what you have to do to join us, and it is a 2 Part process if you are staying over:-
