Rooms are single or shared. Please let us know if you'd like to share with a particular person. It is possible to accommodate children, if doing so allows their parent/guardian to participate. There is not a children's programme.
There are a few half price subsidised spaces available. These are rooms shared with another person. If you are requesting a subsidised space and need to have your own room, please get in touch. These spaces are limited, so please prayerfully consider whether you need a subsidised place. Subsidised places are not means-tested in any way.
Travel bursaries are available up to £40.
The event is ecumenical, and open to people of all faiths and none.
