Tours and Hospitality

Away from the important business of Region XIV there is a packed agenda of tours and events for the companions travelling with delegates and who are not attending the Region XIV business sessions.

The welcoming dinner open to delegate's companions will be held at the majestic Beaumanor Hall stately (and some say haunted) home next to the picturesque village of Woodhouse. Organised sightseeing tours to local places of interest will leave the campus every morning.
