Tewkesbury Core Event

July 1 - 3, 2022

Based in the historic town of Tewkesbury the outline plan for the weekend is:

Friday & Saturday night – hotel in Tewkesbury:

  • With a significant number of locals the numbers currently staying for the weekend are insufficient to get any hotel “deal”, especially approaching High Season.
  • Therefore, we are leaving finding accommodation up to individuals, but are suggesting people use the Tewkesbury Premier Inn, on Shannon Way, GL20 8ND.
  • The price obtained there, in March, for Friday and Saturday nights, dinner bed & breakfast, is £223.  This includes £8 per night for the Advanced rate which permits cancellation up to 28 days before the booking, and £24 per day dinner and breakfast “meal deal” at the adjacent Brewer’s Fayre.  £112 DBB per night is very similar to what you would pay in one of the town-centre hotels, but they are already nearly fully booked.
  • Lunches will be included in the Saturday and Sunday packages.

Saturday

  • AM – Live Validations.
  • Lunch tbc, depending on number of validations.
  • PM – Walk Tewkesbury battlefield with David Harvey & Ian Gumm leading.
  • Evening – informal dinner & Quiz.

Sunday AM

  • RAF Stoke Orchard – Chris Finn.
  • Stoke Orchard Rifle Range – Bob Brunsdon.
    • Handle over 30 firearms from Brown Bess to Armalite.
    • Fire various weapons incl EIC Musket, SMLE & AR15 (Armalite).

Sunday early PM – BBQ at range run by local RBL – proceeds to Poppy appeal.
