Networking Evening 18:00 – 20:00

We are pleased to invite members to our Spring General Meeting and Networking Drinks, taking place on Monday 16 May 2022 at the National Waterways Museum, kindly hosted by Visit Gloucester. 

Gloucester is a spectacular and attractive surprise. A Cathedral city located on the River Severn and fantastically situated between the beautiful areas of the Cotswolds and Forest of Dean. It is the most inland port in the country with a proud industrial past, evidenced by its Victorian architectural backdrop, whilst being rich with history from Roman times that you can see at every turn. It benefits from great connectivity by road, rail and water with the major cities of Bristol and Birmingham and the regency town of Cheltenham within easy reach.
