There are limited places on most visits and so priority will be given to DAS members. Where spaces are available for non members this will be announced on the news ticker on our home page.

Booking arrangements for members

Following the successful use of online booking for the winter talks, we are using the Eventbrite online system for booking our summer events. In order to give everyone time to look at the programme and decide which events they would like to attend, online booking will open on 20 May when the Eventbrite booking links will be sent to members in an e-mail from the Secretary. These links are for members only and the events will not appear on the Eventbrite website at this time.

Booking online will enable you to see immediately if places are available, to add your name to a waiting list for an event that is fully booked, in case there are any cancellations, and if you have to cancel a booking, to obtain a refund directly from Eventbrite. Should there happen to be any unforeseen changes of plan, those who have booked will be notified immediately by e-mail from Eventbrite. Online booking will also help the Section organisers to manage their events efficiently and simplify our method of payment.

if you have not used Eventbrite before, it will automatically set up an account for you the first time you book for an event. If you wish to book more than one place on an event (e.g. two members in a household), you will need to book separately with the individual names (but the email address can be the same). There are limited numbers of places for almost all the summer events, so do make your bookings as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

If an event is not fully booked before it is to take place, it may be opened to non-members, for example by invitation to other special interest groups or to the general public via Eventbrite. There may be an additional cost for tickets for non-members.
