Stratford 2017 Introduction

Alas, poor Mark House, I knew him well.

(There’s many a man has more hair than wit! – I was adored once too!)

There are many events in the womb of time, which will be delivered, but none I say as grand a feast for the heart, mind and stomach as for the National Conference of Table and Circle in Stratford-upon-Avon 2017!

So come together thy Friends, Tablers, Circlers, lend me your ears, as we gather at the Holiday Inn, which does sleepeth over 400, in over 200 reserved rooms of the grandest splendour, there’s place and means for every man (and woman) alive.

Thursday night will see board arrivals, ghost tours, river punting or a play – at thou own expense!

Conference eve will see a celebration of the ages with themed parties of 80’s and 90’s, roast hogs and BBQ, live music and disco beats and the reintroduction of the late lounge and ‘Last man (or woman) standing’.

All of Stratford is a stage and all the Tablers and Circlers merely players; they have their exits and their entrances; and one man (or woman) in his (or her) time plays many parts, his (or her) acts being played out between the ages of 18 & 45 as we head to our AGM’s.

Arts House, Arts House, wherefore art thou Arts House? Why it is a mere 10 minute stroll along the main thoroughfare of Stratford to where fine ale, pork baps and whippy ice cream will be served to all during the interval of the Table AGM; Our good ladies, merely need step a few paces within the venue hotel to their conference style, round tabled, AGM! Beverages abound with a delicate ‘ladies finger’ buffet.

At the evening gala dinner we will recognise amongst us that some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them as we acknowledge our new boards, and are royally entertained with ‘The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) and (revised)’, performed by the world renowned Reduced Shakespeare Company!

Revelry will continue to the small hours with more live bands and DJ’s.

So join us one and all in Stratford-upon-Avon from 5th to 7th May 2017, for a paltry £245.00 per person, for two complete nights you’ll never forget. Praise us as we are tasted, allow us as we prove!
