2nd December 2017
8th August 2017
The venue for the Regimental & Association Christmas Dinner & Dance will be the Britannia Hotel (Shires Suite) Dialstone Lane Offerton Stockport Greater Manchester SK2 6AG. The Christmas Dinner & Dance is on Saturday 2nd December 2017. This will be the 21st organised by the Oldham Branch Fusiliers Association (Lancashire).
The Oldham Branch Committee and many emails that I have received convinced us to return to the Britannia Hotel due to the excessive cost we paid last year.
Tickets The price of tickets are £28 each. The cost for attending and not having a meal will be £15 each. Please note we have had to limit the dinner to 240, so please book early.
Cheques are to be made payable to the Oldham Branch Fusiliers Association. Would all guests attending please send payments direct to the Treasurer? Anyone wishing to pay online please let the Treasurer know and the Oldham Branch account details can be sent to you to make your payment.
