Planned AAPGAI Events 2022

Although difficult to do in these volatile times, we are staying optimistic with our events calendar, but at the same time, very aware that the ongoing Covid19 situation may force us to reschedule some of these events.

That said, here is a list of our intentions for your 2022 Diary:

1. Spring Assessments & Open Day Event – May 2022

The dates for the Spring assessment weekend in 2022, to be held near Cockermouth on the river Derwent in Cumbria, are now set for the 19th – 21st May, with our very popular Open Day to be held on Saturday the 21st May, (see poster) so please put these dates in your diaries.

4. Autumn Assessments and Open Day – October 2022

This brings us full circle to our final event of our 2022 calendar, i.e. our end of year assessment and open day event at the Caer Beris Manor Hotel in Builth Wells, and if this year was anything to go by, with a full program of events, then this should once again be another amazing gathering. If you would like to book in for assessment at this event, or simply require further information, please contact our Secretary Peter Hastings at:, alternatively, if you wish to book your place on the open day, (see poster) to enjoy the demonstrations and see what AAPGAI is all about, then please contact our Events Officer Leigh Fidell at: for further information.
