Do I need to book?
Absolutely! Although we do not charge for these events, space is limited. The venue may be full and you will not be admitted unless you have pre-booked, no matter how far you may have travelled. We also need to know who is coming to assist with catering and other practical issues. Booking in advance will ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible, both for you and for us.
If you have not already done so, you can book here.
