15 August 2019, Highgate House, Creaton, Northamptonshire
From Anne Barber - Organiser
A change of venue this year to the fabulous Highgate House, a venue that we know and love! The service and comfort at this great hotel are second to none, we know you will enjoy being there.
We wanted to give you longer to network and talk to each other and the new National Celebrant Awards Gala Dinner does just that and provides the opportunity to stay overnight.
We promise you another packed day that will be of real interest whether you conduct funerals, couple and family ceremonies or all.
About the day
The 2019 Convention will be a day packed with seminars, workshops, talks, demonstrations, and exhibitors to visit. You pick the sessions that you want to attend.
It will also host the first National Celebrant Awards Gala Dinner! There were hundreds of entries last year for the awards so this year there is a special dinner and evening event where the awards will be presented.
We are still adding sessions so keep checking back for updates.
Talk to members of the Wedding Celebrancy Commission at the Convention about how they are working together to represent celebrants.
The registration desk will be open at 9:00 am, when refreshments will also be available.
Anne Barber, Host
Anne will open the Convention and explain the schedule for the day.
