How it all works!
The full schedule for each festival will be released 3 months prior to the event. To secure a place all you need to do is to register for the day or days you would like to join us and add a challenge if you fancy taking part in one! Each day ticket will provide you access to the HUB (via a wristband) and the ability to enjoy any of the walks and workshops scheduled that day.
Once the full timetable is released, you will be able to access your account and select the walks, workshops and presentations that work for you! Most sessions are available each day of the event and many are repeated several times to make sure you do not miss out.
Note some activities may incur additional costs due to catering, entry fees or travel (Cream teas, Ferries, Museum entries and so forth) payment is taken when the activity is selected.
Register early because priority for booking individual activities
is given in order of initial registration date.
