The first Philatelic Congress of Great Britain was held in Manchester in 1909. Barring interruptions due to war, they have been held annually ever since. The venue moves each year. Congress is the opportunity to meet with fellow collectors for a relaxing few days in pleasant surroundings. The events include discussions, displays and visits, plus the ever-enjoyable Congress Banquet.
Congress 2017 will run from 27-30 July 2017 at the Cardiff Jury’s Inn.
Congress is part of ABPS – for more information see here
