Welcome to Region 05 – East Midlands


The East Midlands region lies at the centre of England and has frequently been in the middle of historical events, from major battles in The Wars of the Roses and the Civil War to pioneering work in the field of medicine including the introduction of Ibuprofen and the MRI scanner.There is a huge variety of things to see and do either for pleasure for example walking in Derbyshire or visiting historic buildings and sites all over the region; or for education such as the Space Centre in Leicester. Visits and activities for AOUG members are organised throughout the year, one of the most popular being lunch in Lincoln, everyone is welcome to join in along with friends and family.
Any suggestions for events are welcome as it is not possible for me to keep abreast of everything happening throughout the region I rely on members telling me of anything they are interested in or think may be of interest to others.
