By the generous invitation of its Principal, our Vice President Julian Lloyd-Webber, the magnificent new Royal Birmingham Conservatoire will host the 2019 Delius Prize.  The RBC will also be the venue for our Society’s 2019 AGM and Annual Lunch.  Paul Guinery, our former Vice Chairman, and Chairman of the Delius Trust, will adjudicate the public final round of the Delius Prize Competition. 

The Conservatoire is within a short walk of Birmingham New Street Station, or a brief taxi ride.  All members can attend the AGM at no cost, but for those who wish to take advantage of the day package, to include coffee and biscuits on arrival, admission to the Prize Final Competition and a three-course served lunch, the cost will be £39 per person.  AGM papers, application and menu choice forms, will be mailed to members during April.
