This year’s Philatelic Congress of Great Britain is being held at the Jurys Inn Hotel, 245 Broad Street, Birmingham (centre of the city) from Thursday, 8 September 2022 to Sunday, 11 September 2022.

The theme of the Congress is going to be “Organised Philately” – how our hobby is organised in different ways.
