Spring Weekend

Spring Weekend, EGM & AGM

Friday 16 March – Sunday 18 March 2018

Abbey Hotel Golf & Spa,

Hither Green Lane,

Dagnell End Road,


B98 9BE

For 2018 we are staying at the Abbey Hotel which is situated on the northern boundary of Redditch town between Beoley village and Bordesley village. Five minutes drive from the M42 (J2), 15 minutes from the NEC and Birmingham Airport. Stratford and Birmingham City Centre are only about 20 minutes drive.

Redditch was a designated new town which was established in 1964 and it now enjoys a successful mix of old and new. There are many facilities and attractions around the area for partners and family who are not taking part in the philatelic side of the weekend, to enjoy and the hotel offers discounted tickets for  a host of popular local and Birmingham attractions including Cadbury World and West Midland Safari Park. You can also visit the Black Country Museum, Biscester Village or Hatton Country World.

The format for the weekend will be similar to our weekend of 2017 where we hope to offer a guest display. We will let you have more information as it becomes available.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible. Please put the date in your diary:

Friday 16 March to Sunday 18 March 2018.

An attendance form and further details will be published on this page and in the December 2017 issue of CONTACT.
