HMS Calliope MWA Gathering

HMS Calliope MWA Gathering

Not our annual reunion but a chance for another MW Gathering and get together will be taking place on Saturday 19th October 2019.  The purpose of the Gathering is to get as many MW rates together both past & present, including RNR MW rates, to have a social and catch up.  Probably after a good few years for some of us!!

The event is open to ALL Rates and Ranks, including those currently serving, The event is open to All rates and Ranks

The details are:

  • Friday 18th October – Those travelling to Gateshead have a Social drink and catch up at the Hilton Hotel Gateshead (if there is enough interest for this I will reserve an area at the Hilton for us all)
  • Saturday 19th October – All day free and easy day doing what you want to do!

Saturday 19th October – 1900 to 2330 HMS Calliope All rates Mess for the Gateshead Gathering

  • Sunday 20th October – Gateshead Gathering Endex and depart

Rig of the day – Smart Casual – NO Trainers

I have secured a preferential rate and reserved 10 x rooms – a single occupancy room is £105 per night and a double room is £115 per night, both prices include breakfast for the Gateshead  Gathering.  There is a charge for on-site parking at the Hilton. 

For those of you not aware of where the Hilton is located, it is literally across the road from the HMS Calliope!


For those who will be attending the cost will be £5 per person (to cover the cost of the Room booking and the Bar staff).  I will also need the names of those attending and their guests as I will need to be forwarded them to Calliope for Security reasons when accessing the Site.

You are most welcome to book your own rooms, there is no pressure to book the Hilton! 

If there are any issues booking the rooms please let me know, including of the allocation has been exhausted, and I will endeavour to get it sorted.  It will be great to catch up with everyone again.

It is hoped to hold a raffle on the Saturday night. Raffle prizes will be greatly appreciated and should add to a fun evening!

For any questions please contact Polly Porter the organiser. Visit the event page for his full contact details.
