Plans for 2021

Plans for 2021

We have noticed interest on our website and on our Facebook page regarding this year’s Congress. It is our aim to hold the Congress this year, but we are awaiting the Government’s announcement regarding the extent of further relaxation of Covid restrictions on 19th July. If, as seems likely, the restrictions are relaxed sufficiently we will invite entries.

Due to increasing costs to hire the venue at the Apex, we have had to seek a different venue but have not found a similar affordable one to date. This year we have booked Moreton Hall Community Centre, on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds, for 23rd and 24th October 2021. This is a smaller venue and numbers will be limited to 90. For the future, we will be seeking a larger venue, should one be available.

We will be inviting online entries via the website with a copy entry form on the ECF Calendar, our Facebook page, and on the Congress website. Previous participants can expect an email from us once we are open for entries.
