Things to know before you book

Venue information
See the venue information for information on rooms, accessibility, diet/food/menus, crèche/childcare, transport, and selling tables.
Booking policy
Please read the booking policy before booking. All bookings include a £50 non-refundable deposit/booking fee.
Booking name
You are required to give a forename and surname when booking. This is the name you will be registered under and the name used at registration and by the venue, especially in case of emergency, e.g. a fire roll call. This name cannot be kept confidential as it will be on your folder and may be used around other people. However, we appreciate that some people do not want to give their real names. We do not insist that you use your real name, but if you choose a name, you must remember it, as this is what you will be known by to the registrar and the venue. The name you use for payment will be known only to the treasurer.
You will be given the option of choosing a name for your name badge and this is what other participants will know you by.
Home group
You will be asked if you want to join a Home Group and if so what time you prefer. Home groups are optional and the aim is to help people get to know others. They meet at regular times and consist of a small group of people with a facilitator. If you sign up for a home group it is not compulsory that you attend all the meetings of your group. If you choose to join a home group, you will find details of your assigned group and meeting place in your registration pack.
Instalments
Unfortunately we are unable to offer instalments but Paypal offers instalments so you may be able to take advantage of this.
Bursaries
We have a limited amount of money to provide some bursaries - please see the link for further info. You should apply for a bursary before you book.
On-line only
Details about the online only event will be available shortly
Day visitors
Autscape is a residential event and we have to prioritise bookings for residential participants. We will release day tickets in due course.

Fees

Please select your fee carefully when booking as this year we have made some changes.

About the 2024 prices

Sadly, the Autscape event is considerably more expensive this year than it was in previous years. The pandemic has done a real number on our finances, everything has become more expensive (venues included), and we’ve run out of reserves. Please know that we, volunteer organisers, also pay to go to Autscape and we pay the same price hike as the rest of you. If there had been any way to avoid the price hike, we would have, as we don’t like paying it either. We hope that as many of you as possible will find the money and come to Autscape. If you cannot afford it, please do not hesitate to apply for a bursary.

Considering how much more expensive everything has become, we still believe Autscape is good value for money compared to similar events. Remember it’s all-in: accommodation and three meals per day are included in the price, so you will not need to have any further expenses during the event.
