Thursday 12th September 2024


FarmED, Station Road, Chipping Norton OX7 6BJ



Join paraplanners from all over the country as we gather for the Paraplanners’ Assembly’s BIG DAY OUT on 12 September 2024.

What’s more, on the eve of the main event – so that’s from 1900 on 11 September 2024 – we’ll be hosting THE BIG NIGHT IN.

For both events we’ll be gathering together at a breathtaking destination – FarmED – right in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.

Tickets for the BIG DAY OUT 2024 cost £40. Tickets for THE BIG NIGHT IN cost £20.

12 September: The Big Day Out 2024 / 1000-1700 / £40

We’re still tuning up the plan for the day but don’t let that stop you booking.

After all, it’s an Assembly. So expect an informal gathering which combines a blend of topic-specific small group sessions – which we’re calling Crop Rotations – and all-together sessions.

Lunchtime drop-ins

Last year we ran an informal drop-in session during the lunch break for day trippers who were starting out as outsourced paraplanners, thinking about it, or already were. In 2022 the drop-in was for people new to paraplanning. Basically, we’re saying that there will be a drop-in and there’s every chance it will be right up your street!

Special Assembly

We bring everyone together for some kind of life-affirming exploration of all things paraplanning!
