Please also note that call is by year at the date of the event, not by month within the year (in the same way that we all advertise ourselves as called in a particular year, not a particular month!). We work on a membership year, so 'Under 3 Years' call is call in 2015-17 etc. 


How Do I Buy a Ticket?

Because of the large number of options, there are a large number of fields below.

Only 4 should be open to you: depending on whether you are coming for 1 night or 2 nights; and depending on whether you want as paper bundle or not. Please choose carefully. If you feel the wrong ones are available, please email Jo Davies.

Sorry the fields are not necessarily in logical order - we are trying to fix that.
