This information is provisional.

24 March: Apologies for the delay to opening registration. A bug was found in the form which needs fixing. We will not be processing any forms until Friday 12 April. If your form arrives before then, we read it in case there are any important questions on it but won't assign bedrooms or places until Friday 12 April.

On 12 April we process the forms received in a random order.

If you find waiting for the form difficult and have access to a printer, we can email you the paper copy of the form.

20 March: We hope to open booking by the weekend. Apologies for the delay. After testing a few changes were needed which took longer to fix than expected. We have changed the 5 April date above to 8 April to compensate for this delay.

How to Book

The links to the booking forms will appear above when booking opens.

Change to booking system

In some years we receive a large number of bookings in the first couple of days. Anyone who needs more time to fill out their form or happens to be away from a computer in that time period loses out. This year there is no need to race to fill out the forms as quickly. We are going to have a couple of weeks after we open booking before we look at the forms and then we will look at them in a random order. This gives everyone, including the people who need to post their forms, the same chance of whichever bedroom type is first to be booked out this year.


Do not send payment with your application; wait for us to contact you.

We accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer and cheque.

You will be given your deposit (£50) due date when you are emailed your payment instructions. Usually it is three to four weeks from the date we offer you a place.

All conference fees must be paid by the end of June.

Deposits are not usually refundable.

Additional Needs

If you have any additional needs, you put them on the booking form. If Autscape or the venue can't meet them and your booking has to be cancelled as a result then your deposit will be returned (provided the need was on your form).

Bedroom Information

This year we have single, twin, double and family rooms. Some are en-suite and some are not. All the bedroom doors lock with a key-card. Only some types of food are allowed in bedrooms - things like biscuits and fruit snack packs (like raisins). No hot food is allowed in bedrooms and neither is food that needs preparing.

There is more information about the bedrooms over here.
