Welcome to our new Surrey 2022 Mark Benevolent Fund website which contains information about the Festival finale to be held at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel, Gatwick, Surrey RH10 3EU on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd July 2022.

I have the honour of being the President of the 154th Festival for the Mark Benevolent Fund. I look forward to welcoming you to Surrey and on the following pages you will find information regarding all the activities we have planned for the weekend.

The Festival Banquet will be held at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel, RH10 3EU on Saturday 2nd July 2022 and hotel accommodation has been reserved at a special price of £100 per night for those attending the banquet. We have also reserved hotel rooms at their sister hotel, the Copthorne Hotel London Gatwick, Copthorne Common, RH10 3PG, at the same price. The hotels are part of the Millennium Hotels Group and are less than 2 miles apart.

Free car parking is available at both hotels. Coach transfers will be provided for those staying at the Copthorne Hotel London Gatwick.

For those wishing to travel by train Three Bridges Station is less than 10 minutes away and London Gatwick Airport is under 15 minutes.

On the following pages you will find details of the Festival Banquet to be held on the 2nd July 2022. This will be preceded by a drinks reception and followed by entertainment provided by the West End Jerseys.

On the Friday evening we have arranged a BBQ at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel and this is also available to those staying elsewhere. Entertainment will be provided by Jahson Nembhard, a singer entertainer and former lead singer with the Drifters.

On the Saturday there are trips from the hotels by coach to:
  • A leisurely tour of Denbies Vineyard and wine tasting
  • A trip into the world of gin at the Silent Pool
  • Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens, a Grade 1 Listed Garden
Bookings for the Festival Banquet, Saturday trips and the Friday BBQ are on the tickettailor website with links on all the following pages.

Bookings for the hotel are to be made direct by phone with the hotel, giving the relevant hotel discount code.

My wife Pat and I look forward to seeing you all in Surrey in 2022.
