Events in 2019

We are offering four summer events in 2019. Our annual Autumn Gathering will be held in the New Year, but not before we've welcomed in 2020 at Wasdale in the Lakes.

Kench Hill
24th to 27th May

Kench Hill is proving a very popular venue for members in the South of England, and we return there for another weekend in the Kent countryside.

Laurieston Hall — “Connections”
8th to 14th June

After a couple of years break we are very excited to return to Laurieston Hall. This is a structured week exploring themes of connectivity and community.

High Close
20th to 27th August

Following the success of this year's return to High Close in the Lake District, we will once again be taking over this youth hostel for a week of hillwalking and community-building. 

27th to 30th September

Weekends at Coldwell near Burnley have proved very popular also, and we will be returning to this dramatic moorland location.

Annual Autumn Gathering
10th November 2019

Originally scheduled for a later date, the Autumn Gathering and AGM will now be a one-day event held at the LGBT Centre in Birmingham.

Wasdale New Year
28th Dec to 4th Jan 2020

New Year in the Lakes has been a fixture in the ECC calendar for many years, and we will be returning to see in the new decade. Further details to be announced later.
