Regional groups have the purpose of providing events for Association members in our regions who cannot always travel into London. They can be attended by any member of the Association whether they live in the region or are visiting – all are welcome! Non members who are considering joining the association are also welcome.
Association members can also bring friends with them to events. The member should, of course, attempt to encourage their friends to join the Association!
In 2018 the following events were held outside London:
- Two full day conferences at Warwick for the Midlands Group
- Visit and full day conference at the National Armouries Museum, Leeds, Yorkshire for the North East England and Yorkshire Group

- Visit and talks at the Royal Green Jackets Museum, Winchester, Hampshire for the South Region Group
