Halley 70 Year Celebration - 2026

Friday 9th - Sunday 11th October 2026
Northampton Town Centre Hotel
Z-70 logo

An event to mark 70 years from the founding of the base at Halley Bay, Antarctica, on 6th January 1956 by the International Geophysical Year Expedition. It follows on from the successful 50th (Z-50) and 60th (Z-60) anniversary celebrations.

The event will have three strands:

  • Reunion of people who have inhabited or visited the station, and some of its history.
  • Current and future science at the station, enabled by its unique location.
  • The engineering, technology and logistics which make the science possible.

A committee has been formed to organise the event and planning is underway. If you are interested in attending, please let Tony Wincott know if you have not already done so; email z70event@gmail.com or text / call 07702 055601. More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
