Don't think this has been mentioned on here yet and heard it still has spaces:


To mark the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its creation, a meal is to be held at the Anchor Inn in Tideswell, Derbyshire on Saturday 11th February, 2023. As well as a meal there will be speakers on behalf of the original Ghar Parau explorers and the current GPF committee.

The meal will be three courses with vegetarian and vegan options available, cost £28. The venue can seat 50 people and we expect there to be strong interest so places will be allocated on a strict first come first served basis. To book your place please email the GPF secretary (Howard Jones) at howard.jones@british-caving.org.uk and pay £28 into the GPF bank account as follows:

Ghar Parau Foundation, Yorkshire Bank, sort code 05-08-68 account number 33353551.

We look forward to seeing you there

Howard Jones, GPF Secretary

Glad you flagged this up as I've been working with the GPF people to promote the event and was about to post an update. In addition to the contact details above and dinner booking arrangements, check out this link to the BCA website for more information and a link to a recent YouTube presentation by two of the original expedition members, Arthur Champion and John Whalley.
