There are limited places on most visits and so priority will be given to DAS members. Where spaces are available for non members a booking link will be provided on the list to the left.

Booking arrangements 

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. Members have received a full list of events by post and email, with links to the Eventbrite booking page for each event. The full list of links is for members only and events will only become publicly visible on Eventbrite if it appears that not  all spaces will be taken by members.

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.
