Conference Details

58th Guild Conference 28th 30th October 2022

Guild members and their partners are invited to attend the 58th conference weekend. The booking forms for the conference are now available in the Members Area; and are to be returned to Elaine Robinson; there is no conference fee this year.

This year the conference will be held at the Park Inn hotel in Peterborough; the accommodation and function room in this hotel are all under one roof. There is a lift to all floors and the room that we will be using is on the ground floor opposite reception. There is a car park at the hotel.

The hotel is reasonably central in Peterborough. The train station is not far (trains from the north east stop at Peterborough); there is a bus station nearby at which National Express coaches stop; and there is a large shopping centre within 10 minutes walk from the hotel for the judges' partners!

The weekend starts on Friday evening with a home-made wine reception of placed aperitif wines from the 2022 National Show, and a Lambic beer brewed by Richard Baldwin. The evening meal follows with your own home-made wines. Please also feel free to bring your own home made wines and beers to finish the evening. (NO COMMERCIAL CORKS OR LABELS).

The first session on Saturday morning is the wine and beer assessment, conducted by Elaine Robinson. Please bring your bottles with you on Friday evening. After coffee, there will be a beer tasting of various styles of IPA beers, brewed by various Guild brewers, conducted by Richard Baldwin. After lunch, there will be a wine tasting of English Wines. Please bring your tasting glasses to each event.

Further details of the programme for the weekend will be available later.

The AGM is on Saturday afternoon at 3.30pm; remember that this is your chance to voice your views. The wine assessment is White Social and the beer assessment is 4% Bitter using Crystal (2 bottles required).
There is a claret jug and a tankard to be won.

To help you select wine to complement the food, the dinner menus are on the web site in the Members Area.
