Reference code – THEFER190424 ; To book please call – 01617741926

This number is NOT the East Midlands Airport Leonardo Hotel but please use it to make your booking.

Please state the reference number as it refers to an event being held at the Leonardo Hotel East Midland Airport and was issued by the Conference and Events Team at that hotel.

If you have issues booking please email j.jeffries2@sky.com giving your phone number and I will endeavour to resolve.

The Club is only organising the AGM and have been able to arrange a visit to a collection on Saturday afternoon. It is around 30 minutes’ drive away from the hotel.

Guests staying at the hotel are responsible for booking their own evening meals as required, but the hotel have indicated they would accommodate groups sitting together.

It is possible to book online and it has been bought to my attention when one of our committee looked at doing this he could get a more advantageous price. I queried this and the events team said if this is available take the option. However, one of our members did book online and paid more than the negotiated price. The choice is yours.

Please note:   the hotel does NOT accept cash-it is card only

Do not hesitate to contact Judy should you have any queries
