[All delegates who transferred their bookings from 2020 or 2021 DO NOT need to take any action] Reflecting the number of bookings that transferred to 2022 from the two rescheduled (2020 and 2021) events relative to our contract with the hotel, we had two sets of Early Bird prices available in 2022: Early Bird 1 We were able to increase from 10 to 13 the number of EB1 rate rooms (which were only available for the full weekend 2 night package, could only be booked on line and had to be fully paid at the time of booking). All of these EB1 rate rooms have now been sold. Early Bird 2 All rates on the website are now EB2. EB2 rates can be paid in full at the time of booking or you can pay a £75.00 per person deposit, with the balance paid no later than January 31st 2022. Full Rate For any EB2 booking not fully paid by January 31st 2022, or any new booking received after that date, the full rates will apply. Non-residential packages The Day Delegate packages are the same under EB1 and EB2 but increase to full rate if booked after January 31st 2022.
