Guernsey

A week long TOMCC Trifest event on the beautiful island of Guernsey taking in the annual celebrations for Liberation Day. The event is open to all TOMCC Club Members and WATOC Club Members.

There will be a number of events organised over the week and Guernsey has a lot of sights to see and places to visit during the day. There will be a Bike Show and a Gala Dinner & Dance (reservation and payment needed in advance).

Please book your own accommodation on the island for that week (or longer if you fancy exploring more) and check this page for more details of the events that will be going on. Check the sailing times for the ferries first though - you don't want to spend a night on the dock. For a 15% discount on Condor Ferry bookings use the code TOMCC22 (this  will expire on 6th of April 2022 and is valid for travel between 4 May and 17 May 2022).

You can book up to 4 rooms on the main website and there is a special section for block bookings of 5 rooms or more. See the Guernsey St Peter Port (Admiral Park) hotel | Premier Inn website for more details.

You are advised to check ferry times before your hotel and make sure you book your ferry crossing with Condor ferries. Use code TOMCC22 for a 15% discount (this  will expire on 6th of April 2022 and is valid for travel between 4 May and 17 May 2022)..
