Meeting Dinner

Reichel Hall Bangor University, Bangor

The meeting dinner will be held in the elegant Reichel Hall in Bangor. Conveniently located for those of you based in Bangor, the Hall was designed in a neo-Georgian style by the architect Percy Thomas and was opened in 1942. But since then, the Hall has been converted to offer student accomodation as well as dining and conference facilties.

The Hall is close to amenities and accomodation such as the Management Centre, a short walk into Upper Bangor provides you with some pubs and cafes, and a slightly longer one 10-15 minutes takes you to Bangor.
