Hull 4NCL International Congress

Social Events



Taking place: Saturday 2nd November


Booking for both events is essential – use the online entry form to book, or if entering by post please include a separate note.


Historic Pub Walk 18.30/18.45


Departure from outside the Royal Hull Hotel.


Cost £5 (payment can be made at the time of entry)




A journey through Hull’s historic Old Town with Paul Schofield, a freelance English Heritage accredited guide of the pubs of Hull Old Town discovering its rich history, fascinating architecture and varied anecdotes.


All this as we visit a handful of character-filled pubs, which should make for an intoxicating evening! We will finish at the Minerva, one of the most historic pubs in Hull with plentiful eating establishments in the immediate area alongside Hull’s Marina.


As this is a Saturday night, we haven’t been able to organise a buffet as we did for the similar events at the British. We also need to start early – 18.30.


For anyone whose game is not finished by then there will be a second departure at 18.45 (where we will catch up the main party). Numbers limited to 25. There is a fee of £5, but we will give you (most) of this back by buying your first drink.


Meet the Masters 20.30 – 21.30


Prince of Wales Suite, Royal Hull Hotel


Cost £5 (payment can be made at the time of entry)


An opportunity to meet and chat with the players in the GM norm event over a glass of wine (or a soft drink, or a pint from the bar) and some ‘nibbles’ in the Prince of Wales Suite, Royal Hull Hotel.


The Meet the Masters Event is timed to allow anyone doing the pub walk to attend. The pub walk finishes at the Minerva which is approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the Royal Hull Hotel. Numbers limited to 40. There is a fee of £5 to help cover the costs of drinks etc.
