TAG Family Weekend 2018

The Arthrogryposis Family Weekend 2018
and Annual General Meeting

Saturday 20 October and Sunday 21 October

at the

Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, Paradise Way, Walsgrave Triangle, COVENTRY, CV2 2SR, just off Junction 2 of the M6.

At this time, we have four consultants coming to talk to us at this years’ Family Weekend. Two will talk about children within their speciality and two will be talking about adults.

We are also lining up some non-medical speakers. More on them in due course and the programme in detail.

As usual we will have a discussion session and you will have plenty of time to chat to other attendees.

The Family Weekend is being heavily subsidised by TAG itself as the Trustees want to encourage as many of our members to attend as possible. Before we divulge the cost let me remind you what you are getting for your money.

Saturday 20th October

  • On arrival tea/coffee/soft drinks and biscuits
  • Lunch is a sit-down buffet
  • Afternoon tea/coffee/soft drinks and biscuits
  • High tea for children under 12
  • Dinner is a 3-course served meal in the evening
  • Bed

You are also getting the benefit of the speakers as mentioned already above during the day AND if you have children they will be entertained (under 16) or in a (registered) nanny creche (under 6) and be looked after to enable you to give your complete concentration on all the advice, help and chatting you can take!

Sunday 21st October

  • Full English buffet breakfast
  • Mid-morning tea/coffee/soft drinks and biscuits


As a matter of interest, the cost of the Family Weekend to TAG is about £200 per family – and only a little less for single attendees. So, you can see how much the Trustees want you to come along!

The cost to you of the Saturday and Sunday per room as described above is as follows (NOT per person!):

  • Family Rooms (1 or 2 adults and up to 1 child OR cot only)                 £140
  • If you require more rooms for your family (interconnecting say)          £140
  • If you wish to stay Friday night as well B&B                                       £75
  • If you think you will arrive by 9pm then Dinner, Bed & Breakfast          £90

The age limit for children to be classed as children is 12 and they are free. So, over 12s are considered adults.

As you can now see TAG does subsidise the Family Weekend quite heavily. However, if you wish to pay more, perhaps the full cost even, then please make a donation to help cover the full cost. A donation is NOT compulsory. Thank You!

However, as we have said above we want to encourage as many TAG members to attend as possible. Please contact Peter Lacey (Chairman) – - or Michael Ramsbottom (Treasurer) - - via email if you are finding it difficult to pay.

You can attend for the day – with no accommodation – as a Day Delegate. You will get the tea/coffee/soft drinks, buffet lunch and the children entertained etc. as described above.

  • The cost per adult is £20
  • The cost per child is £10

There is no charge to attend the AGM on Sunday and you will get tea/coffee/soft drinks.

Children under 3 are free.
