GB&I – The Big Weekend October 1st – 3rd 2021

For all those people who are finding it difficult at the moment, the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away” – Captain Sir Tom Moore

There is a light at the end of tunnel and with the support of our membership we can now start the process to reopen our plans for the year head which includes a representation of the original 75th Year previously planned events along with a weekend that can only be described as “THE BIG WEEKEND” for 41Club Great Britain & Ireland.

The last 15 months have reshaped our thoughts, experiences, and most of all strengthened our friendships through the amazing work of 41ClubConnects along with our resolve, that we will meet again. We aim to bring together all aspects of the membership over this amazing weekend, fun, fellowship, entertainment, and the business side of things with an SGM, whilst ensuring it is an inclusive event for all, Nationally & Internationally.

We want to create an event that celebrates the amazing efforts by so many over the past 75 YEARS and in special recognition of the past year in dealing with Covid19 and the supportive work our members have shown in their communities.

The dates are set aside are October 1st – 3rd 2021 at the amazing venue of DeVere Orchard Hotel & Conference Centre Nottingham and the booking site will open once we have the government updates.

For those who had previously booked a separate communication will be sent via the PLC event team shortly.

The Big Weekend – What’s Included

We are bringing together an amazing weekend of activity with an inclusive approach for our members, focusing on the fun, fellowship and friendships renewed from all around the world. Entertainment that is world class and with a few surprises! We are using the knowledge of the last twelve months through our work of 41ClubConnects to also share an online event offer over the weekend;- details to follow.

The weekend will include early check in on Friday 1st allowing those who want to make it a full weekend of  activity with options of exploring the home of Robin Hood and his merry men.

Over the three days there are also many 41Club related activities available from the business side of things via the council meeting and half year special general meeting, the amazing International Nations Night on the Friday, supported by gin tasting events, classic car displays from Jaguar Land Rover who will be one of our sponsors leading into the Gala Dinner with world class entertainment on the Saturday Night, not to forget the National Golf Competition which takes place just down the road at Breadsall Priory on the Sunday.

We are also creating an online event for the parties with special celebration food kits to be delivered to those who cannot make it but want to be part of the fun and fellowship with your very own digital experience supported by quadrant events, our aim is to ensure everyone is connected over this special weekend worldwide.

The weekend will also recognise those who have gone above and beyond over the last year with special 75th year awards, special guest speakers from all over the world.

Over the last year through 41ClubConnects we have built new bridges to all parts of the country and world through new digital experiences allowing those who might have not previously been able to attend events the chance to meet those not seen in many years, we aim to deliver experiences that represent 75years of Continued Friendships.
