The weekend was described as both fantastic and fascinating and full of wit, warmth and wisdom.

The feedback was so overwhelmingly positive that we're already begun plotting and scheming for our 2018 festival.

Have we got a deal for you... but do you trust us?

On Thur 1st February we'll be putting our first batch of tickets on sale.

We haven't announced any guests yet, we haven't revealed any panels so how do you know what you're getting? That's why the first 50 tickets we put on sale will be just £10 for the full weekend. We're calling them our mystery tickets because until we start announcing guests in March you just don't know what you'll be getting.

On 1st March when we start revealing the line up tickets will go up in price to £20 for the full weekend. From from 1st June when the full programme is finalised tickets will be full price at £40. So do you take a chance and invest in this fabulous weekend now or do you hold off and miss out on this fantastic 75% discount?

Do you trust us? Take a look at what was on offer last year and make your choice. Remember there's only 50 Mystery Tickets available so get them whilst they're hot or you might just be kicking yourself come March...
