TICKET/PAYMENT GENERAL INFORMATION:
There is a choice of weekend tickets to match your requirements. Please study the choices below carefully before paying. You can up/downgrade at a later date if needs be, but we appreciate all those who already know what they need!
TICKETS WILL BECOME AVAILABLE ACCORDING TO A SPECIFIC TIMETABLE. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CHECKED THE HOME PAGE AND OUR EMAILS BEFORE REGISTERING.
We have maintained tickets at the same price as 2020.
Please DO NOT contact us privately about tickets. If you are on our mailing list, you will hear about our ticketing timetable, and the details will be updated here on the website.
If you are NOT on the mailing list, see why you should consider it HERE, and join HERE.
EVERY ticket includes:
* ALL the panels and discussions during the weekend
* ALL refreshments and lunch on both days
* The now-legendary UK Meet tote bag, full of promotional gifts from the authors and publishers, and a USB stick full of free fiction.
* A programme in downloadable format.
* A casual but welcoming meet-n-greet event on Friday afternoon at the venue for attendees who arrive early, and for a chance to meet people in a less formal setting.
OTHER SOCIAL EVENTS over the weekend may be organised and will be advertised and paid for separately. Details will appear in your newsletter.
* Payment buttons at Paypal will be provided for your convenience on the Registration page. Paypal allows you to pay either from your Paypal balance – if you have an account – or by Credit/Debit card (if you’re not sure how this works? see the screen guide HERE).
* You can also pay directly through Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
* If you wish to discuss any other method of payment, please contact Clare, the Treasurer.
* Payment must be made in STERLING, but Paypal will automatically convert your funds if you pay from a currency balance.
“I don’t have a Paypal account, how can I pay?”
You can still use the buttons: Paypal will allow you to pay EITHER by account or by credit/debit card. If you can’t see how this works, please look at the guide HERE.
GENERAL ticket is available for all.
SPOTLIGHT ticket costs more but is available for those attendees who’d like to take up promotional opportunities. This includes anyone who wants to promote at the event i.e. authors / cover artists / comic book artists / bloggers / reviewers etc.
* Single day tickets MAY be available depending on numbers but, for your information, the last three events have sold out of all places at full weekend rates.
A General ticket offers you everything listed above.
A Spotlight ticket offers you all that as well, BUT ALSO:
* space in the gift bag given to all attendees for a selection of your promotional goods,
* 10mb of space on the USB stick for your promotion and/or free fiction samples,
* space at the Author Signing event during the weekend,
* mention in the Meet programme and the opportunity to be featured on the UK Meet website/blog.
WE DO NOT HAVE SPECIFIC SPOTLIGHT/GENERAL LIMITS on our tickets, only for the number of attendees at the event overall.
2022 NOTE: if any of the Spotlight options are affected or reduced by Covid restrictions, we will investigate equivalent opportunities for promotion.

GENERAL ticket at £120 / SPOTLIGHT AT £145.
You can pay the whole balance on registration. It guarantees your place, and will make all our lives easier! However, if you prefer, you can pay a MINIMUM DEPOSIT of £50, this will guarantee your ticket ASSUMING you pay the balance by the deadline.
You will NOT qualify for the Early Bird discount on the balance payment unless you pay the balance by 28 Feb 2022. If you pay the balance after this date, it will be at the non-discounted price.
The deposit is non-refundable, whether or not you subsequently attend the event.

* We will pass on to you any Paypal fees we suffer for a refund.
Tickets are NON-TRANSFERABLE at any time.
DO NOT attempt to buy a ticket for anyone else, or SELL/TRANSFER your ticket to anyone else.
This is partly due to security and safety issues, also because the event has been over-subscribed in the past. Due to our commitment to allocating tickets on a strictly first-come basis, we can’t allow any transfer of tickets.
If you can’t come, or choose not to come, please let us know as soon as possible, and we will arrange for your place to go to the next applicant, or to the next person on our waiting list.
