Note to non-UK residents:
We already have several visitors travelling from outside the UK for the Weekender, everyone is welcome!
BUT – it is not possible to order tickets online without a UK post code. So just drop us an email with your requirements and we’ll get this sorted out for you quickly and easily! Thanks.
Watch out Kent, the Northern Invasion is coming!
Because good things come to those who wait…
Four turners from the North of England will be invading the area armed with their turning skills and techniques and an array of charm and wit to conquer the area and maybe convert the audience to some different ideas. Hopefully without any blood being shed (because good turning practice and safety rules will be observed).
We don’t give up easily, and despite the disappointment of having to postpone the Woodturning Weekender last year we’ve been planning and scheming in the background to return this year, so we’re pleased to announce new dates and a new venue for the Northern Invasion:
When: 4&5 September 2021
Where: The Spitfire Ground – the home of Kent County Cricket Club, St Lawrence, Canterbury CT1 3NZ
What to do now:
If you rolled your tickets over from last year, your place is guaranteed, just keep watching out for our bulletins.
As it’s just possible that we might have to postpone again, we’ve decided not to make tickets available yet. However, as space is limited, we invite you to register your interest by emailing us as email@example.com and let us know how many tickets you are interested in, which day(s) and whether you’d like to join us for our evening meal (see below). This DOES NOT commit you to anything. When we’re as sure as possible that the event will go ahead, we’ll email everyone in order of registration. You can then buy your tickets if you want, and if not, we’ll move on along the list. But please don’t register if you’re not interested, it just makes our life harder!
How much: Tickets are £40 for both days or £30 for one day. Tickets include all demos taking place on your chosen day.
SATURDAY NIGHT PARTY!
At the first Weekender we belatedly celebrated our 25th birthday with a barbecue party. This was hugely popular so we’re arranging something again!
For 2021 we’re planning a fun ‘Pub Quiz’* which will include a three-course meal.
We can guarantee there won’t be any difficult questions, this is strictly for fun and a chance to come together. There will be plenty of time to chat about the day’s events and anything else you want to. We will need some quiet while the quiz is taking place though!
The evening will include a simple, pub-style three course meal as well and there’s a reasonably-priced bar available for drinks.
And as you might expect, there could also be a few surprises during the evening.
You don’t need to worry about organising teams or swatting up on anything, the emphasis here is on having a fun evening and spending time with friends old and new.
We really don’t do intellectual on a Saturday night!!
Details will be released soon!
*We’re calling it a pub quiz but it isn’t really, it’s not even being held in a pub!
The Link Buttons below don’t work at the moment, they will be updated as soon as we are able to confirm all the details of the 2021 Woodturning Weekender.
