The Lace Guild AGM Fringe Events

Workshops, Gala Dinner and Lace-In

Saturday 13th April 2019 Haydock Holiday Inn

Please note that this event is almost a month earlier than last year, as we are linking up with Church Meadow Crafts again for The Haydock (not just) Lace Fair. So it is important to book your place early to avoid disappointment. All costs are included on the booking form. The deadline for menu choices for The Gala Dinner will be the 9th March.


Mavis Thompson - Miniature Torchon

Susan Roberts - Coloured Binche Snowflakes

Eve Corrall - Lacy Landscapes (Fully Booked)

Sarah Thomas - Book and Paper Fun

Workshops will run from 10am to 4pm. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day, and a range of sandwiches, wraps, fries and fresh fruit will be prepared for lunch.

All workshop rooms are on the ground floor.

The Gala Dinner will be held at from 6.30pm onwards in the Willow Suite; followed by a Lace-in. This is a great opportunity to chat to old and new friends and see the display of Needle Lace, which has been donated to The Lace Guild by The Needle Lace Society. Hopefully, those in attendance will wear their own lace for others to see and bring work in progress to show off. The cost of the three-course meal will be £28 for members and £33 for non-members. The Gala Dinner will be held in the Willow Suite, which is situated on the ground floor and is fully accessible.

Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. The chef is very accommodating and will do his best to meet everyone’s requirements.

The room rates will be £89 for a double room and £79 for single occupancy (both inclusive of breakfast). The Holiday Inn have kindly agreed to hold a block of rooms for attendees. The code LG2 should be quoted when booking. The hotel is situated just a few minutes’ walk or a 2 minute drive away from Haydock Park Racecourse. For those who need it, there are some volunteers who would be willing to ‘taxi’ members to the AGM.  The Holiday Inn has recently been refurbished and has excellent facilities and is in a prime location for our AGM.
