 BTS Pre-Exhibition Evening  Meet at

The Jaguar Suite: Ricoh Arena Saturday 16th May

There will be a pre-exhibition meet up for anyone wishing to join us on Saturday 16th May at the Jaguar Suite of the Ricoh Arena.

Its just an informal get together to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. The Jaguar Suite is situated on the ground floor of the Ricoh Arena (next to the Hotel Restaurant). It will be signposted or just ask at reception. It is a private bar and all are welcome although this year we wont have food on offer so best to eat before you arrive. There is a Frankie and Benny’s, Burger King, Chiquitos, Subway and Pizza Hut across the road on the shopping complex and also the Casino on site serves food.

Please come along and join us for a drink (or two).

Around 7.00pm
