Feast of Tabernacles 2016:
The Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa in Southport, Lancashire, will be the venue for the Feast of Tabernacles in 2016.
Southport rose to prominence as a seaside resort during the Victorian era. On the North West coast of England, it boasts sandy beaches, an elegant shopping street and the second longest pleasure pier in the country. It is the home of several golf courses, including Royal Birkdale, and is sometimes referred to as England's Golfing Capital.
Southport is within easy reach of the city of Liverpool (European Capital of Culture 2008) and its museums (including the Beatles Story, Mersey Maritime Museum and the sobering International Slavery Museum) plus a number of art galleries.
The Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa offers a choice of bedrooms, including spacious family rooms and suites. In addition, the hotel boasts health club & spa facilities and complimentary car parking for all residents. It is situated on the sea front overlooking the Kings Gardens and is a short walk from shops, the pier and various activities. We have an arrangement with the Royal Clifton for a delegate accommodation package on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis, with meals taken as a group in the Windsor dining room, together with the use of the Blenheim and Balmoral function suites for our Feast meetings.

All About the Feast of Tabernacles
Chronicling the activities of Jesus Christ's earthly ministry, the book of John points out that when the "Feast of Tabernacles was at hand," Jesus Himself "went up to the feast" and taught at the Temple in Jerusalem. This was done in observance of the final of three annual Festival seasons that are outlined in the Bible, particularly in the book of Leviticus. These three seasons, the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Pentecost and the Fall Festival season, were all observed by Jesus and the first-century Church. The latter season is capped by the eight-day Festival of Tabernacles and Last Great Day (also called "the eighth day") (Leviticus:23:33-36).
