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 is some parking next to the venue with several other car parks and street parking close by. There are also two Park & Ride car parks. It is only a short walk from the rail station and, being a popular holiday resort, there is a good choice of accommodation available.
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. These prices are, of course, for the 2 days.
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.
