Annual Philatelic Weekend 2019

The Annual Philatelic Weekend provides the opportunity for members to display and view collections in a relaxed and cordial atmosphere.

Nearly 40 members and guests attended our annual weekend 2019 during which we were able to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Society.
Reports on the displays and the AGM are published in the April edition of the Journal. (#289)


Annual Philatelic Weekend - 2020

Abbey Hotel RedditchAfter 11 years at the Charlecote Pheasant Hotel, Charlecote, Stratford upon Avon, and largely due to increasing hire charges of the Hamilton Suite an alternative venue has been arranged for the 2020 Philatelic Weekend.

The France & Colonies Philatelic Society's annual weekend 2020 will be held from Friday 13 March to Sunday 15 March at the Abbey Hotel, Hither Green Lane, Dagnell End Road, Redditch B98 9BE. See map

The cost will be £222 for single occupancy and £316 for double occupancy. This is for bed, breakfast and dinner for two nights and refreshments during the day. Lunches will be available payable by individuals as they wish.

Access is straightforward. By road it is some 20 minutes from Junction 2 of the M42.  By rail one goes via Birmingham New Street. From the station at Redditch one would need to take a taxi, around a 20 minute journey costing around £10. View map here
