Events programme

Availability

Most of our events have limited availability and tickets are allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you contact us by email or telephone at the office organising the event, we will confirm availability of tickets and send you an email about secure online payment using the specific event code given in the event information below.

Alternatively, once we have confirmed availability of tickets you may send a cheque in payment.

Once payment has been made you will receive an email which will serve as a ticket. As we no longer issue paper tickets, staff on duty at the event will have a list of paid-up attendees against which they will check your name.
