APS Regional Reunion in Liverpool

Saturday 8th October 2022

Holiday Inn Hotel


We look forward to welcoming APS members and non-members to our Annual Reunion in 2022.

Please try to find and encourage ex-IMM people to come along.

Liverpool is a city that is very special to us all and one that has had an amazing transformation in the last decade.  However, because of this, it is an enormously popular visitor destination and consequently hotel rooms get booked up very early and they are not cheap.  We have reserved some rooms for our members at the Holiday Inn but it is up to individuals to confirm their bookings and pay the hotel direct.  Please do not depend on getting a last minute deal, book early wherever you decide to stay.


Friday 7th October  

You and your friends can choose to eat in the View Restaurant of the Holiday Inn (see Booking form) or try one of the many restaurants available on your doorstep in the city centre.

The Holiday Inn – City Centre

Lime Street, Liverpool

The Holiday Inn Liverpool City Centre is in the heart of Liverpool’s vibrant city centre; located opposite Liverpool Lime Street Station, overlooking the neoclassical splendour of St. George’s Hall.

The hotel is a short walk from the Walker Art Gallery and the Empire Theatre.  A 15-minute stroll takes you to the lively Albert Dock, packed with sites like the Beatles Museum and Tate Liverpool.  The Liverpool One complex, teeming with shops and restaurants is right on the doorstep.

Let the train take the strain – the hotel is directly opposite Lime Street Station.  However, if you must bring your car there is a secure car park (St John’s) adjacent to the hotel at a rate of £6 per 24 hours .  Parking tickets have to be counter-stamped by the hotel.

Our meeting takes place in the Liverpool 1 Suite which is on the 2nd floor, with stairs and lift access from the entrance foyer.  Although the room has no natural light it is spacious and air-conditioned.  Tea and coffee will be available in the concourse outside Liverpool 1.  Lunch will be served in the  restaurant overlooking the city and dinner will be in Liverpool 2.

The AGM will finish at approx. 3pm in order to give you time to see something of Liverpool with your friends.

This year APS will not book any overnight rooms.  This can be done directly with the Holiday Inn or you can choose to stay at any of the other hotels in the vicinity.

A booking form was inserted in your Journal if you are a member. Non-members  (or anyone needing more forms) can request booking forms through the ‘Contact Us’ tab on the website  – please help us by booking A.S.A.P
