has info about International Rocket Week held at Kelburn, near Largs, Scotland. IRW is held around the August Bank holiday week / weekend.
As mentioned point your news reader at uk.tech.rocketry and chat with folks a little more local to you.
Hope this helps.

As other posters have said, you should subscribe to uk.tech.rocketry and consider joining UKRA.

Whereabouts are you? There's a large annual event held in Largs at the end of August. There is a group by the name of SARA up there too.
You've probably been flying Estes black powder LPR stuff? The next step is generally to move up to AP & HPR. It's quite a big step at present in the UK. Officially, Estes in the UK stops at D (The Estes BP E, though technically illegal, does turn up sometimes), but HPR pretty much start at G with Pro38. Aerotech used to fill that gap, but are no longer available. To be able to buy AP you need to fill out some paperwork and get some licenses. Details are on the UKRA site.
As for kit recommendations for that next step, we have some good vendors in the UK. You can see a list at

Deepsky, in particular, have a very informative web site.

Hey! That's a new web site to me!
No posts to their email list for _years_.
1936. Anyone beat that?
Not heard from them recently, but they were pretty active with launches at the same site as the IRW HPR takes place.
STAAR is pretty much John Bonsor, who organises:
Excellent event!
