The Master’s trip this year will be a long weekend in the walled city of York, one of the finest cities in the UK and home to the famous Minster, the National Railway Museum and a host of other attractions.

One of the highlights will be a formal dinner in the magnificent 14th Century Merchant Adventurers’ Livery Hall.

Accommodation has been reserved at the Hilton Hotel, Tower Street, York YO1 9WD, tel: 01904 648111. The Hilton is in the centre of York and all the events, including the formal dinner, are within easy walking distance. Parking in York is notoriously difficult and the recommendation is to come by train if at all possible; the hotel is about a 10 minute walk or a 5 minute cab ride from the station.

For those who do drive there is limited parking available at the hotel: it costs £19 per day and must be booked in advance.

The costs for the weekend are £425 per person for those occupying a single room and £350 per person for those sharing a double or twin.

Court Assistant Edward Fulbrook has done his usual superb organisational job in masterminding the weekend and I am immensely grateful to him. At this point it would be very helpful to have an indication of the number of people likely to want to come, so please could you email Edward at if you are interested in coming.
