Harrogate Dinner 

a.k.a FOC Northern Get-Together

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.

This is an event that John, G3WGV very kindly organised for us, having done so in many previous years, with just a gap in 2018 for our 80th anniversary celebration. Covid-19 sadly caused both the 2020 and 2021 events to be cancelled but we resumed in 2022.

Our 2022 event was, as usual, at the delightful Cedar Court Hotel, in the pretty town of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, on 18th June, 2022. This year the FOC Committee organised the event as the FOC 2022 AGM was uniquely held here as well.

The hotel proved once again to be 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 put a great menu together for our dinner, held in the magnificent Queens Suite.

Having re-launched the Harrogate dinner in 2022 we will now continue in 2023 and beyond.

2023 Northern Get-Together

The date for the 2023 Northern Get-Together has been set for Saturday, 10th June 2023. The Cedar Court Hotel has been confirmed and we will shortly be adding a facility to take bookings for the event on this web page. Paul, G4AFU will be co-ordinating the event working with the FOC Committee.

Here are some pictures from the 2022 event.
