BIS Summer Get-Together 2018

Date: 28 July 2018
Start Time: 1.30 pm
End Time: 5 pm

Venue: The Royal Gunpowder Mills, Beaulieu Drive, Waltham Abbey, EN9 1JY.

Join us at the historic Royal Gunpowder Mills for the Society’s AGM, followed by an afternoon social and picnic. Catch up with BIS friends and bring all the family for a relaxing afternoon.

BIS Fellows are invited to the AGM, which will be followed by a discussion on the Society to which all Members and Fellows are welcome, so come and have your say about the BIS!

The focus of the afternoon will be the social, and a raffle of tempting space-related prizes will be held. If you feel like donating any space-related prize, perhaps an unwanted book or a piece of space memorabilia, please let us know.

Tickets are available at £20 each, raising money for the Society, with under 16s free. The ticket price includes access to the site and a guided tour. Bring all your own food and drink, and a picnic rug. Unfortunately, the cafe facilities will not be available on site.

Please advise us if you will be attending the AGM only, for which there is no charge.

Tickets for the Get-Together are on a first come, first served basis, so click here to book.

Directions to the site can be found at

We are arranging a car-share scheme, so if you have any spaces available, please let us know the number of seats and your route, or if you would like a lift, please advise us of your location. We’ll do our best, but no promises! Email [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you there for what is sure to be a memorable afternoon!

Be sociable; support the BIS!
