Society: Events: AGM 2019
Awayday images

The SABRE AGM will be held at the Great Western, Wolverhampton WV10 0DG at 13H00 on 13/04/19.

The Great Western is CAMRA approved, and as befits its location between the two historic city centre stations, is full of railway memorabilia. In addition to being less than five minutes walk from the mainline station, it also has its own free car park.

Whilst the AGM starts at 1300, people normally start arriving from noon; and SABRE has space booked within the conservatory, though on sunny days we tend to decamp to the beer garden.

If you're looking to make a weekend of it, there is plenty of hotel accommodation available in the city centre, with the nearest being the Wolverhampton City Centre Premier Inn at the Low Level Station.

Date: 13th April 2019 13.00 BST

How to Get There

By car: Sun Street is just off Wednesfield Road (A4124), just off the Inner Ring Road. Access from the north is via the A449 (which is your best option) and A460, or via the A454 from the east, all of which lead from the M6 and/or M54. Don't use the A4123 unless you are really, really, really interested in traffic lights in stop start traffic.
Note that vehicular access via Corn Hill is now open once more, as this now forms the new entrance to the High Level station.

By train: Wolverhampton station is just around the corner, and is an important stop on the West Coast Main Line.
Access the Great Western is via the new drop off car park. In this case, turn left immediately out of the station entrance, and follow the path alongside the drop off car park until you meet the exit from the multi-storey car park. Turn left into Corn Hill, and follow the road under the railway lines. The Great Western is immediately in front of you.

By coach: Wolverhampton has regular National Express coach services from all over the country. Coaches currently stop within the Bus station, from just the opposite side of the Inner Ring Road from the mainline railway station, easily reached via a ground-level footbridge. It is approximately 6 minutes walk from the venue.

By tram: Wolverhampton St. Georges is the northern terminus of the Midland Metro that runs between the two major cities of the West Midlands conurbation. It is located in Bilston Street, and is approximately 10 minutes walk from the venue.

By air: if you're wanting to travel by air, then Wolverhampton Airport is to the southwest of the city, but does not currently have any scheduled services. The nearest airport with scheduled services to Dublin, Belfast and Aberdeen is Birmingham Airport, which has direct trains and is located three Inter-City rail stations away via Birmingham International.
