Well, 2020 has been a bit of washout, during which the Invaders have, for the time being, been repelled. Not by the people of Kent or any of the other visitors, but by an unseen menace and the requirements in place to try and prevent its spread.
Undeterred, the Invaders will return and The Northern Invasion is being re-scheduled for 2021
This delay has meant we may have to change our plans for next year- different dates and a different venue.
Watch this space for future developments and details of the online Weekender coming soon!
All ticket holders should have been contacted by now – please let us know if we’ve missed you!
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.
Woodturning Weekender will, we hope, return in 2021!
Watch out Kent, the Northern Invasion is coming!
we’re moving the whole thing down to Kent like a huge travelling circus – only without the tent, ringmaster and the funny trains with the giraffe heads sticking out.
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).
Due to the current situation the dates and exact location are yet to be finalised, but the weekend will start unofficially early on the Friday evening before with the Looong Weekender. That’s our informal ice-breaker get together before the Weekender starts for real on the Saturday!
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.
