Social Programme

As usual at Coling, Wednesday 20th August will be excursion day. The day will start with a visit to a trip to Tatton Park, with its 18th-century Mansion House, Edwardian gardens, Tudor Old Hall, and 1,000-acre deer park. After lunch we will make the short trip to the historic town of Chester, famous for its Roman ruins, Elizabethan two-tiered arcades, its complete city walls, the Eastgate clocktower, and plenty of other attractions.

Another event to look forward to is a reception at Manchester's gothic Town Hall. And no Coling would be complete without the banquet, to be held at the impressive Palace Hotel.
