Welcome “Get Together” from 6pm

Come and join us at Pitcher & Piano, Quayside, Newcastle for a first informal Get Together on the evening of Sunday 19th May 2024, ahead of the Conference.

This Pitcher & Piano has a spectacular water-side location, next to the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, overlooking the Tyne.  This modern chain bar serves beer, wine & cocktails plus a menu of grazing plates & pub classics.

This Get Together is designed to be relaxed and easy, with delegates ordering their own drinks and food on the night and settling any tabs themselves.

For planning purposes, when you complete your Conference Registration please indicate whether or not you wish to attend this Get Together.

Informal Dinner from 7.30pm

Aiming to appeal widely to all delegates, we have designed the dinner to be informal, modern and unique. 

We have booked the quirky Maling Hall at Brinkburn Street Brewery: a small, independent microbrewery based in Byker, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, with its own bar and kitchen.  The Brewery’s aim is to spread the word about the wonders of local craft beer and a range of cask and keg beers will be available on the night, as well as wines and soft drinks also.

Ticket price includes 3 drinks, canapés, a street food buffet and music.

Tickets: £49 each.

Please book your ticket with your Conference Registration.

Note: Tickets must be pre-booked at least 14 days in advance, when final numbers will be sent to the caterers.  After this, a waiting list will be in operation.

Dress code: Smart Casual

Location details: Brinkburn Street Brewery, Unit 1A Ford St, Byker, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 1NW
