2021 Event Timetable

We hope to hold events in 2021 including a One Day course and Pre-grading courses.  The Summer Course will not be held in 2021.

We will delay the scheduling of any events until we are confident that we can hold them.  This depends on lock-down and prevailing Government and EKF rules.

Please watch this site and the related Facebook groups for updates.
