Are you ready to Buzz to Budapest? Bookings now open

Girlguiding Manchester invites all Guides, Rangers, Young Leaders, Leaders and members to Buzz to Budapest!

Saturday 1st August 2020

What is Buzz to Budapest?
Buzz to Budapest is an event which will give every participant the chance to explore the city and all it has to offer. Fancy a challenge? Extend your stay in Hungary or why not visit another location en route or on your way home.

This is a non-selection event. We hope Buzz to Budapest will encourage as many Leaders as possible to take their unit abroad, whether it is for the first or countless time. Bookings will open for Group bookings from November 2019.

How much does the day event cost?
There will be a small event fee per person; this will cover things like the activities provided on the day, production and mailing of information to units and a badge for participants.

The fee does not include accommodation, food, travel or uniform.

Optional extras – details will follow soon about event clothing which you can chose to purchase and an option to extend your day and join other groups attending Buzz to Budapest for an evening meal.

Further information:
Groups will receive a comprehensive event booklet, with information about: forms, ideas of things to do whilst in Budapest and details about the event on 1st August 2020.

There will be event mailings at regular intervals following registration.

Each group leader will be responsible for their unit’s finance, travel and accommodation arrangements. All number ratios and licence requirements for international trips must be adhered to, as per The Guiding Manual.

There will be an Event team in Budapest to support Leaders and groups whilst there.
If this is your first international experience, please do liaise with your Commissioner and County International Advisor who will be able to support you and provide you with a mentor.
Look out for dates on the North West England website for Travelling Abroad training sessions.

Please also remember that Leaders who do not currently have their Travelling Abroad residential qualification can use this event to gain this module and may apply for a Travelling Abroad Grant from CHQ. Normal application procedures for this qualification will apply and the application form and instructions are available on the Girlguiding website.
