English Riviera Congress

1st -3rd July 2022, TBC

In 2021 the English Riviera Congress, was combined with the Scarborough Summer Congress to create the “Virtual Seaside Summer Congress”.

We hope to return to a live event at a new venue in 2022.

All events are Level 4. The Swiss Pairs is a stratified event.

2021 Programme

Congress Prices

The prices for our online congresses and competitions are significantly lower than they would have been face to face (about 20% less), but reflect the fact that green-pointed events always attract a premium.

We have been working hard to keep bridge going over the last 18 months, but with the pandemic still affecting everything, we also need to work hard to keep the EBU going financially. Despite taking advantage of all government support that has been available, making a number of staff redundant and cutting costs everywhere we can, we will still be using our reserves at an unsustainable rate. With the furlough scheme coming to an end shortly this will only get worse.

Competitions are one way of raising the money necessary for the EBU's survival and we will be following this pricing strategy for all our online congresses and major competitions.
