We’re delighted to announce that the 2012 Annual General Meeting of the UK Pyrotechnics Society will take place on Saturday 5th May, as we return to a previous and most successful venue:
The Marlborough School
We will be arranging a full day of guest speakers, talks and also practical demonstrations. We already have two very special guest speakers lined up; Dr. Sidney Alford and Roland Alford of Alford Technologies. You may well recognise them from many TV documentaries, news reports, science programmes and anywhere explosives expertise are required. You can see Sidney in action in this video from just one of the episodes of the BBC’s “Bang Goes The Theory” in which he appeared. You would be a fool to miss their talk at this year’s AGM, so make sure you are there!
We are also very pleased to announce that Stephen Miller M.I.Exp.E. is to be appointed the next chairman of the UK Pyrotechnics Society. All other appointments remain, and together, we shall be outlining our plans for the future of the society, of which YOU, our members, will be playing a massive part.
The AGM as always is free to UKPS members. Friends, family and the general public are also welcome to attend, but we will be asking them to make a voluntary donation of £2.50 each to help us cover the cost of refreshments and the venue hire. More details of the AGM will be posted here in due course, and you can also follow the discussion on the forum.
As tradition commands, proceedings will close with a professional firework display and we envisage food and drinks afterwards at a nearby pub to provide a networking opportunity and a nice end to the day.
