Great Weekend and AGM in Valencia

Friday 4th – Sunday 6th October 2019

Following our very successful weekend in Bristol combining visits to Tyntesfield House and the Aerospace Museum with the EAZ AGM and Members Forum hosted by Bath & Bristol and Hereford and Monmouth Branches, our AGM Weekend in 2019 will be hosted by the Valencia Branch.

Valencia is one of our newest Branches.  They are very enthusiastic and highly successful and are very much looking forward to hosting this weekend.  Members who attended their inaugural meeting, just two years ago, thoroughly enjoyed the event and are eagerly anticipating a return visit.

Plans for the 2019 weekend are still coming together but include:

  • Dinners at Restaurante La Sucursal (1 Michelin star) at Edificio Veles y Vents and at Colon Market where the meal will be provided by Ricard Camarena who also holds a Michelin star. Both of these buildings are architecturally distinguished and worth a visit in their own right.
  • Visits to the Central Market where Valencia’s best restaurants buy their produce; to one of the best wineries in the region, and to Albufera rice fields where we will take a boat tour before our final lunch at Arroceria Duna.

The event will start in the afternoon of Friday, 4th October and finish with lunch on Sunday, 6th October. It is probably worth noting that members of the EAZ Committee with personal experience of Spanish Sunday lunches say that we will probably not be finished until early Sunday evening!  You may wish to take a flight on Sunday evening, but it will need to be late evening if you are to enjoy the full Sunday lunch experience. Alternatively, for those staying on in Valencia, the Branch will recommend and make reservations at a restaurant for dinner.  We will, of course, organise a Members’ Forum and encourage you to attend and share your thoughts about how to develop the Society and, in particular, Europe Africa. We will also conduct the formalities of the Annual General Meeting of IWFS Europe Africa Limited.  Make a note in next year’s diary now, because this is one IWFS event which you should not miss.
