Holiday to Ypres CANCELLED

Thursday 9th July 2020 - Monday 13th July 2020

THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED. WE WILL WRITE TO ALL ATTENDEES ABOUT REFUNDS

Military history, especially the First World War, is one of the Master’s passions. From our base at the 4* Hotel Ariane, we will have the opportunity to visit a number of cemeteries, museums and other places associated with the War, including the moving Menin Gate ceremony. We will also be visiting Bruges with its churches, Guildhall and canals. We are fortunate to be accompanied on this tour by Steve Roberts, an independent military researcher and well respected battlefield guide.
If you are thinking of joining this Holiday and have a relative that fought and/or died in the First World War, please contact the Guild Office with their details (name, rank, regiment if you have them) as Steve will research their military service records so that we can follow their stories during our visit. This is a unique opportunity!

The price will be set in the new year and will include coach travel from London, accommodation, all excursions, meals and drinks with meals, gratuities and taxes.

Please apply early so we can gauge the number of rooms required.
