25-27 Spring Bank Holiday Congress, Stratfordupon-Avon

The Easter Festival in London in 2019 will be

held at the ILEC Conference Centre near Earls

Court. ILEC is not only better than our usual venue

at the Royal National, but also a little cheaper, so we are

able to offer a small discount. This is available to those

entering before the end of February (as early bookings

helps us significantly with our planning).

We have also made some changes to the Championship

Pairs, with a better schedule while still offering timings to

try to help those with other commitments on Good Friday.

For full information see

www.ebu.co.uk/competitions/easter-london.

For those living in the top half of the country, the Northern

Easter Festival takes place in Ilkley, Leeds on the same

weekend.

The Spring Bank Holiday Congress will be held from the

25th to 27th May at the Crowne Plaza, Stratford-uponAvon.

This Crowne Plaza hotel was previously part of the

Holiday Inn chain and is the same venue as has been used

in previous years. The Championship Pairs is a foursession

event with a two-session qualifying round on the

Saturday, leading to a pair of two-session 'all play all' finals

for the top forty pairs on Sunday. The non-qualifying

players move in to the Swiss Pairs to join those who have

only come to play in this one-day event on the Sunday.

Renovations to the Devonshire Park complex in

Eastbourne are going well, so we are confident that the

Summer Meeting will return there in 2019. Exact details for

the congress are still being finalised, but we have arranged

for it to take place from the 2nd to 11th August. When

available, more details will be posted on

www.ebu.co.uk/competitions/summer-meeting, where you

can also link to information about the renovations.
