Come along, have your say, have a climb, have your dinner and then dance!
Every year the BMC hosts a weekend get-together based around its AGM and 2014 will be extra special as it our 70th anniversary year.
For 2014 we’re heading south. The Isle of Portland, on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, is a unique location offering lots of adventure for walkers, climbers and general explorers. It will be a packed weekend, including talks, masterclasses, dinner and celebrity speakers. The AGM takes place at 10.30 am on Saturday 26 April at the Heights Hotel (our main base for the weekend). The rest of the day is free to boulder, sport climb, trad climb, walk the Round Island coast path as well as enjoy being beside the seaside.
