Below is our provisional program for 2015. It is based on our discussions with members at the end of last year. There are no firm dates as yet and some have still to be negotiated. We hope to announce some dates soon.
In the meantime, look thorough the list and if you have any further suggestions or queries don’t hesitate to get in touch.
