We’re delighted to announce that Basket Brigade 2017 will be held at Bushey Academy in the Grand Hall. This venue has been chosen for it’s excellent transport links, just 5 minutes from the M1 and only 17 minutes on the mainline from Euston station. This venue offers plenty of space, with 2 large halls & additional rooms being made available.
The grand hall alone has capacity for 700, so we’ll have more room than the last few years but hopefully still retain that lovely family feel of the event.
