Catering and entertainment

GWOCGB are going "all out" to make this 40th Anniversary British Treffen a very special one with plenty of interesting things planned to take place throughout the week. There will be commemorative items as prizes and for sale. They will be hosting their very own bar and have confirmed that Neil Green, the preferred caterer, is back by popular demand. It promises to be a great event!

Thanks to Tony Perkins, the GWOCGB 2020 Treffen Co-ordinator for providing this information. Members are encouraged to attend the GWOCGB Treffen as part of the GWOCI Euro Tour 2020 and will receive a GWOCI Euro Tour patch next year for doing so!
