Tickets in wallets and Programmes for the Reunion taking place in Bristol on the weekend of the 15th and 16th September, have been sent out to those attending from the UK. House coloured lanyards will be available for collection when you book in at our TWA reception desk where those coming from overseas can also collect their tickets as they are not being posted.

All hotel rooms at the special rate have now been released but we can still take bookings for the event until early September. 

The Wilhelmshaven Association Biennial Reunion 2023

The Doubletree by Hilton Bristol City Centre, Redcliffe Way, Bristol, BS1 6NJ.

The TWA reunion is being held at the Double Tree by Hilton in Redcliffe, Bristol from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th September 2023 and for those who have booked by placing a deposit we would kindly remind you that the balance is due by the 30th June 2023.

The weekend format is as previous, with a welcome drink and buffet on the Friday evening followed by a dinner dance on the Saturday evening. The two day
ticket cost is £89.00. The Saturday only ticket is £58.00.
The booking forms were included in the last Newsletter but if you cannot locate them, they are available on the TWA website.

The web page link is https://prs-wilhelmshaven.co.uk/biennial-reunion/
You will have to login as member of course. If you are still having issues then please email me at: chris_belk@hotmail.com and I will endeavour to help.

We can still take bookings up to the 18th August 2023. However, as we get closer to the event the hotel will start to release some of the un-booked, special rate, bedrooms that they are holding for us. The later you leave your booking the higher the chance that the hotel will not have rooms available. All requests for
tickets from the 1st June 2023 will need to be paid in full at the time of booking.

As a reminder, there are several other hotels within walking distance of the Double Tree that may offer lower bedroom rates.
The location is very central and close to the main attractions that Bristol has to offer, and we would love to see you there!

Finally, for those who are finding these times financially difficult, the TWA does have a Facilitation Fund that can offer some help on a case-by-case basis to assist you in attending the reunion. Please reach out to Barbara Steels if would like to pursue this. All requests will be treated in strictest confidence.

If you wish to extend your stay to include either the Thursday or Sunday night or both, the same discounted room rate applies. Check-in is from 3.00 pm and
check out at 12.00pm on the day of departure.

Car parking is situated next to the hotel and has an automated payment system. You should make sure that reception has your car’s registration number when you check in. The discounted daily rate of  10 will apply for members attending the reunion. If driving you should note that the hotel is in the new Bristol Clean Air Zone. If your petrol car was made after circa. 2006 or a diesel made after circa. 2015 the  9.00 per day charge will probably not apply. You can check the status of your vehicle on the UK GOV website and search for congestion charge.
