The 2014 AGM will take place on the weekend of the 9/10/11 May 2014. Next year’s event will be held at one of the North East’s most prestigious 5 * Hotels, Rockliffe Hall. Rockliffe Hall is set within 375 acres on the banks of the River Tees boasting beautiful grounds, luxurious bedrooms, gourmet food, bars, spa facilities and a golf course in addition to well equipped meeting rooms. Rockliffe Hall was winner of the Large Hotel of the year in 2012 at the Visit England Awards for Excellence and is a magnificently restored 18th Century estate.

There will be two formal dinners with entertainment, the AGM itself and an inspiring business speaker. We are looking at running a group activity on the Saturday afternoon in order to increase networking opportunities. The annual golf tournament is likely to take place on the Sunday morning. More details and a detailed itinerary will follow.

The hotel is situated just 5 minutes from Darlington Station and fifty minutes from Newcastle International Airport. Trains to Darlington from London take just 2 hours 20 minutes and only 2 hours from either Edinburgh or Manchester.

The cost of the 2014 HBSA AGM will be lower than in 2013. The price for two nights accommodation including meals, entertainment and the AGM, will be £420 per person in a double room and £495 per person in a single room.
