NEW VENUE

Tree Court Dining Room, Owens Park, 293 Wilmslow Road, M14 6HD

THE VENUE HAS CHANGED by a few hundred yards since last year and also since the early version of this entry form. The accommodation is in Ashburne Hall close to the playing hall. Owens Park is a very big University complex about three miles south of the City centre. There is limited car parking at the entrance to Owens Park and lots of on street parking nearby, especially on Old Hall Lane which is the street on the left just before the campus as you drive from Central Manchester.
