Next AGC conference to be held in a passiv house barn in West Yorkshire

4 December 2017

The beautiful rolling countryside of West Yorkshire and a converted barn on a community farm is next summer's AGC conference venue.


Camping is available free on site for those with tents and there will be limited accommodation with local members or at hotels in town. 

The Stirley Community Farm, run by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, has been supported by our Green councillors on Kirklees Council and the barn in which we will hold sessions and have our meals has won awards for its retrofit to Passiv haus standards.

The conference takes place from noon on Friday 6th of July to Sunday 8th July.  

Green councillor Andrew Cooper will be organising a tour of the town from Huddersfield train station at noon, including a training session on public speaking in the town hall. There will be a welcome meal at a local community run eaterie on Friday evening and then a series of seminars, talks and workshops in the Stirley farm barn on Saturday and Sunday. 

Taxis anywhere in Huddersfield cost under a fiver so transport to and from the venue should not be a problem. 

If you book now the early bird reduced price is £20 for paid up AGC members and £30 for non AGC members (plus a small charge for Eventbrite to handle the bookings).
