I understand the hotel accommodation in the Abbey Hotel itself may now be fully booked but there are currently tickets for day visitors at £20.00 each for the Saturday and the Sunday. Attendence at the AGM on the Sunday morning is free to members. Please contact Dave Roberts check the latest position on phonographs@btinternet.com and to book tickets.

Great Malvern is in a tourist area and there is usually plenty of accommodation in the town to suit all pockets.

I look forward to meeting many of you again at Malvern.

I got excited when I saw the topic heading; Malvern is a town in the Philadelphia suburbs. Then I read the posting. Oh well, better luck next time. Hope it's a good show!

Just to add to Tim's post about the weekend, here is a picture of the venue.

Tempting, isn't it?

Roger.

As Epigramophone has alluded to elsewhere, it was another great and successful weekend in Malvern. It is always good to meet up with members from Germany, Spain, Switzerland and of course, from all over the UK and Ireland. These events just seem to get better and better and everyone I spoke to seems to have enjoyed themselves enormously and are looking forward to next year.

I attach a few random pictures:

Some of us relaxing the Nags Head pub after the Sunday afternoon live concert.

Hopefully more pictures will be on the CLPGS Web Site http://www.clpgs.org.uk very soon.

All the best
