2014 Convention – Southport11th August 2014 by webspinner
The 2014 CSGB Convention & AGM was held on the 25th and 26th April at Southport Theatre & Convention Centre which is situated on the Promenade just off the town centre.

There will also be a special display of cards and ephemera to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1.
The Council have agreed that the pricing structure for tables will be the same as last year. A single table in the centre of the room will cost £40 and a wall-backed single table will cost £55. A double table will cost £85 and £115 respectively and a triple table £110 and £155. Additional tables are available at a cost of £20 each for both centre and wall spaces.

Opening times will be Friday 11:00 – 5:00pm and Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm Entrance is free for members, but non-members have to pay £2.50 and have reduced viewing times.
