We've made every possible effort to make it easy for you to book tickets – however, using any online software to make payments for events means incurring extra costs. We didn’t want to burden you with adding any extra costs so we will go the old – more traditional way:

  • To book your place for Saturday events, email Maria:

  • She will provide you with details re: bank account where you’d need to make payment for your tickets
