Tickets

Tickets already purchased are valid for the new event. Tickets are priced at £170 per person for room only and £180 per person for self catering (2 and 6 berth room have sold out). To buy tickets, click here.

Due to receiving many enquiries in the last few years regarding families attending, for this event and moving forward organisers have decided to launch new Family Tickets. For full info on how to book (childrens tickets for ages 5-12 are available for £50 per child) see the ATP website. The ATP site also has info on tickets for under 18s aged above 12.

Refunds

Those who bought tickets and won't be able to attend the rescheduled dates, were offered a refund on tickets, and asked to contact the ticket agency the tickets were purchased with. Applications for refunds must have been made before the end of December.

Deposit scheme

As there is some more time now before the event, the installment ticket scheme has re-opened taking a deposit now of £70 (room only) or £80 (self catered) and ticket buyers can pay the rest of their ticket price by the end of February. See this webpage for details.

Book club

The curator has also picked his group of books for the Book Club.
