Firstly, apologies for the belatedness of this announcement, we hope you’ll understand that we have been busy behind the scenes trying to ensure that we don’t present as possible something we later have to withdraw.
Given the resurgence of continual changes to travel and meeting regulations we’ve been considering the best way forward with Joint Workshop bookings for the forthcoming series (already rescheduled!)
We have agreed with the venues that Emma Fraser’s workshop on Board Reattachment and Kristine Rose-Beers on Islamic Binding are to be postponed but we very much hope to include them in a following series
Bookings are now open for the rest of the workshops. At this point we are simply asking for ‘Expressions of Interest’ only. (Not for Emma’s or Kristine’s please.)
We’ve got (fingers crossed) a great programme! Below is a reminder with a complete list of the 2021 workshops, which includes the three postponed from the 19/20 series.
If you would like to express an interest in attending a workshop or workshops, please contact Sarah Burns with your full name, address and telephone number. Please also state if you are a member or either DB or SoB, (SoB members please give your membership number)
Sarah.firstname.lastname@example.org or 01643 841116.
(If you have already contacted us to ask to book a workshop, please would you reconfirm your interest to Sarah Burns with your full details to avoid any misunderstanding.)
As and when we know whether or not each workshop will go ahead, you’ll be asked if you wish to confirm your booking.
We have varying maximum numbers for each workshop, dependent on social distancing requirements at the time of each workshop.
Workshop images and content is available on DB and SoB websites, and from Sarah Burns.
Weekend workshop fees for DB or SoB members are £185 and non-members £205.
