"The Ageing Worker"
The social events at the ASM are always popular and are recognised as being an important part of the whole Conference experience for delegates. Our aim is to provide a pleasant backdrop for delegates to get together, whilst at the same time showcasing local (and perhaps unusual!) facilities or sites. Do join us and do book early to avoid disappointment!
Please note that ALL events are by pre-booking only.

We have arranged for a private 3 hour cruise around Poole Harbour and the along the coast, departing from Poole Quay.
You will get to see the picturesque natural harbour, the wallet-bursting property of Sandbanks, the largest island of the Harbour - Brownsea Island, plus water sport enthusiasts enjoying the shallow waters. So much to enjoy, as well as networking with fellow guests.
Drinks and supper will be served on board. A commentary will guide us through the landmarks of the harbour and the coast. This promises to be a fun evening.
We will return to Bournemouth at around 11.30pm.
For planning purposes, final numbers are required a week before the event, so very late bookers may not be able to attend.

Gala Dinner and Dance
Wednesday 12th June 2013, 7.30pm – 12 midnight

The landmark of the Pavilion building will give us an excellent environment for our Gala Dinner and Dance. Centrally located, it has been the traditional venue for year-round entertainment since the 1920s. It retains its splendour and elegant styling and is ideal for our event.
Following a drinks reception, a 3 course dinner will be served. This will be an excellent opportunity for networking, which we know is crucially important to ASM participants.
After dinner, a Rat Pack band will aim to get you to the dance floor!
