Location: Hilton Grosvenor Grosvenor Street Edinburgh EH12 5EF
Join us in Scotland's famous, beautiful and historic capital city later this year for Brigade Conference 2018 - from Friday 31st August until Sunday 2nd September.
2018 has been designated as the 'Year of Young People' by the Scottish Government a year to celebrate young people's achievements and value the contribution they make to their local communities. For the Brigade, of course, every year is a year of young people, however conference will take up the Year of Young People theme.
The conference takes place at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel, in Edinburgh (Haymarket), and will feature a packed programme with workshops, worship, opportunities for fellowship, as well as the AGM. The Hotel has very good transport connections to both Edinburgh airport and for rail.
The conference is open to all leaders in the UK and ROI, and we would particularly encourage as many young leaders from across the Brigade family to attend.
Conference registration information, as well as details of a range of accommodation options in Edinburgh, is available here...
We anticipate this year's event to be very busy, so would advise registering and booking
accommodation in plenty of time.
We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
