BANS Autumn Weekend 2018


will take place in at the The LionHotel, on

Friday 7th September to Sunday 9th September, 2018


The Autumn Weekend of the British Association of Numismatic Societies this year will take place in Shrewsbury at the Lion Hotel which is situated in the centre of the town. It will run over the weekend of Friday 7th September to Sunday 9th September and, as someone who has attended BANS events in the past, I very much hope you will be able to join us.

An excellent programme of lectures has been arranged over the three days including, Phillip Timmins, Robin Eaglen and William MacKay. A full programme is available and as you will see the talks will offer a good range of subjects to cater for all manner of interests.

The hotel is a sixteenth-century coaching inn right in the heart of Shrewsbury which is itself one of the most historic towns in the area with a rich numismatic heritage. A selection of double and single rooms is available and all offer en suite facilities. Limited car parking is available at the back of the hotel.

A booking form can be downloaded from this website. The full cost of the weekend, which will include en suite accommodation, all meals and of course the lectures, will be £220 for a single room with a double being £325. So that we have some idea of the numbers who are likely to be there, it would be much appreciated if you could let my colleague Hannah Merry know by email or by post if you are planning to attend. Her email address is:

I do hope you will be able to join us.
