Booking or rebooking accommodation for 2018?

4 September 2017


We realise that the decision to change the dates for the 2018 Convention is difficult and causing some disruption. We apologise for the pressures created as a result and wholeheartedly apologise. If you would like to talk to us further, please contact us at or by phone at 017687 80075.

To help with accommodation bookings and booking changes for the 2018 Convention, please note the following statements from KTA and accommodation providers in Keswick.

KTA (Keswick Tourism Association)

Many KTA members have already been in contact with their convention visitors and have managed to move people around.

KTA suggests speaking directly with the accommodation providers in the first instance to see if a simple change of dates is possible. If anyone is struggling to find accommodation for the new dates, please email and the team there will be more than happy to do what they can to assist.
