Note from the organises : This year's Philatelic Congress of Great Britain is being held at the Jurys Inn Hotel, 245 Broad Street, Birmingham (centre of the city) from Thursday, 8 September 2022 to Sunday, 11 September 2022.
The theme of the Congress is going to be "Organised Philately" - how our hobby is organised in different ways. During Congress there will be input from local societies, specialist societies, national societies, international societies, the philatelic trade and international philatelic organisations demonstrating what each type of society or organisation brings to the hobby - and displaying what is collected!
Amongst the Societies taking part will be The Great Britain Philatelic Society. This will give the Society the opportunity to showcase the best of what we offer members including their award-wining website. This will also showcase a variety of different GB collecting areas.
Other Societies taking part will include the Royal Philatelic Society, National Philatelic Society, British West Indies Study Circle, Birmingham Philatelic Society and Leeds Philatelic Society. The Kay Goodman Lecture will be given by Bill Hedley, the current President of FEPS who will give an international perspective. There will also be presentations by The Philatelic Traders’ Society and others.
Although Congress is spread over four days, it is possible to attend as a day visitor if there are any particular areas of interest.
