The Northern Get-Together and Dinner is traditionally held on the 2nd full weekend of June. It is open to non-member guests and overseas visitors are especially welcome. You can read the whole FOC history of the Harrogate Dinner Here

Our 2024 event will, as usual, be at the delightful Cedar Court Hotel, in the pretty town of Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Our organiser this year is Paul, G4AFU.

When: Saturday 8th June, 2024

Where: Cedar Court hotel Harrogate, Park Parade, Harrogate. HG1 5AH, United Kingdom

The Cedar Court Hotel has always been an excellent venue for our event. Harrogate is a delightful floral town nestling in the Yorkshire Dales that is at its colourful best in June. As in previous years, the hotel has put a great menu together for our dinner, held in their magnificent “Harrogate Suite”. Read full Hotel info and directions Here.

Meet at the bar from 6,45pm. An informal FOC dinner is arranged at "Zizzi" - Harrogate for 7,30pm.  

We'll be emailing everyone registered for our main event sometime around June 1st to collect attendance numbers. The bill for this restaurant will be settled by those attending on the day.

Saturday 8th June:

The hotel also has a very comfortable lounge with a bar, which is a popular area for chatting and catching up with friends during the day.

We are pleased to welcome Mike, G4BLH who will give a talk on "TW Electronics” being the company once owned by our SK member Tom Withers, G3HGE. Mike will bring some of Tom's gear (Magpad, TW Olympic bug, VHF radio's et al.) to showcase G3HGE's commercial products.
