The 2018 calendar is officially here!
So few things:
1) Events that have "confirmed" at end of line have been booked and officially confirmed !!
2) Couple of possible new events . Blackpool which Mark Mills is looking into. Blackpool had no votes for this year's calendar and was therefore not introduced as an event this year. Since then, some people have expressed interest. if you are interested in going to Co Blackpool, please update this on the Facebook poll (in Co Event-Organisers and attendees group)
3) Co Newcastle is a possibility for 2018, but this is based on the need for a co event in the North East following feedback and the amount of FOCAL twitter followers in that area. If you are interested in researching a venue and hosting an event here, please let me know
4) For a few reasons including the hotel venue's December parties madness which has impacted our event both last year, and potentially this year, and the fact that a few people have not been able to make the finals event due to their own xmas parties, we are bringing the finals forward a week to 24th November. Hopefully, keeping the same venue subject to further discussion
27/28 January: Lincoln (Ben) Confirmed
24 Feb Bristol: (Mark) Confirmed
21 April Leeds: (Callum) Confirmed
12 May London: (Jen) Confirmed
2 June Waterford: (Eoin)
16 June either Peterborough or Cambridge (TBC) (Mike to advise)
7 July Manchester: (Matty)
4 August Milton Keynes: (Zarte)
18 August Bournemouth:(Sean) Confirmed
8 September Huddersfield: (James)
29 September Dublin: (Eddie)
