The Good Funeral Awards

Early Bird Bournemouth Hotel Offer

7 March, 2011

We’re expecting that visitors will be travelling long distances to come to the Six Feet Under convention. So you’ll probably need to think about a hotel. If you want to plan in advance, the weekend will kick off with a reception on Friday 12 August at 7pm. It will be a chance to welcome all the delegates.

Saturday 13 August will include lectures all day at the Executive Business Centre on Holdenhurst Road. Sunday 14 August will be the day for activities like the tour of the cemetery. We’re planning a formal buffet lunch with a speaker, which will be the last main get-together. Accommodation needs to be paid for separately. You will be able to pay for a weekend pass which entitles you to come to all the events, or you will be able to buy tickets for individual events.

You’ll be visiting Bournemouth at the height of summer. There are seven miles of fantastic beaches, and you’re sure to want to mix up your stay with a visit to the beach and a walk through the gardens.

If you want to be at the very centre of the town, we recommend the Arlington Hotel, (see above) which is offering a special SFU accommodation rate of £108 for two nights (Friday and Saturday) including bed and breakfast. This rate is for double rooms, twin-bedded rooms or a single room – all have en-suite bathroom facilities. It’s only a small hotel so be sure to take advantage of the offer as soon as you can.
