About The Event
North West Section Christmas Lunch

Enjoy the festive season with the IGEM North West Section at their popular annual Christmas Lunch. This year's after dinner speaker is Mark Halsey, who will talk about his years as a professional referee. 

Mark was born in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire but was later based in Bolton, Greater Manchester. He primarily refereed in the Premier League from 1999 to 2013 and was on the league's list of Select Group Referees from its creation in 2001 until his retirement.

The lunch is taking place at the Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa - a beautiful 700 year old country manor set in the Lancashire countryside. 

Guests will have the opportunity to begin the day by networking at the bar, which will open at 11:30. Lunch will start at 13:00 and will include a three course dinner, served with complimentary wine (approximately two bottles per table of 10).
