2020 AGM and Longsword Tournament

Date expected to be the 3rd of October.

Southport Swords will be hosting the event and will be keeping this page updated via the Webmaster at all times. At the moment there are no plans to reconsider this event as the date is some time away and we are hoping the current Covid-19 crisis will have been averted.


Southport is easily accessible by train as Northern Rail operates regular services to Southport from Manchester Airport, Manchester (Piccadilly, Oxford Road and Victoria stations), Bolton and Wigan. Connecting services to / from the North East and Yorkshire are available at Manchester Piccadilly and from the North, Scotland and the South at Wigan.

From the East and the Midlands, trains stopping at Liverpool South Parkway connects with the 15min service to Southport, and Lime Street trains offer an easy change of station to the Southport service too.

From Preston the X2 bus, starting at Preston Bus Station and stopping outside Preston Railway station gives a reasonably fast trip to Southport Lord Street.

Staying for the Weekend

Being a holiday town there are plenty of places to stay, from Top Notch hotels to smaller B&B's. For CAMC members there is the caravan park down near the coast road, within walking distance of the town. There is also a Motorhome parking facility at Leisure Land, again within walking distance. We will put the contact details on here at a later date.
