About this event

ICE South West is inviting senior members in the region to celebrate the festive season by attending an exclusive dinner and reception for ICE fellows and their colleagues, who are looking to becoming fellows in the near future.

This Christmas event will be hosted by the ICE South West Regional Committee Chair, Stuart Allen and will include a short address by special guest, Andrew Page-Dove, Regional Director (South West), National Highways.

Set in the historic Castle Hotel in Taunton, this is a fantastic opportunity to network with other ICE fellows and industry colleagues in beautiful surroundings, while enjoying a festive meal and drinks.

Fellows are encouraged to extend this invitation to a colleague who is thinking of applying for ICE fellowship. In particular, prospective fellows from under-represented groups are welcome.
