Full or day-delegate tickets are available, with evening meals an optional extra for day delegates. There are a limited number of rooms available for day delegates requiring overnight accommodation, eg to attend the Annual Dinner - please contact the BGS office. 

  • Member rates apply to full BGS members and members of Gloucestershire Grassland Society.   When booking on-line the member rate is gained by logging-in to the members' area of the website.  GLS members will need to contact the BGS office to take advantage of the reduced rate.
  • Students/YFC members can claim a discounted day-delegate rate by providing BGS with a copy of student ID/YFC card.
  • A coach place is included for 'full-delegates', but anyone booking a 'day-delegate' ticket needs to also indicate if they want to use the coach by selecting the appropriate coach booking.
  • Due to falling demand we are not offering an alternative tour this year unless interest is shown by 10 or more people.  However, we are offering a reduced rate for those not wanting to visit the farms.
  • Places are limited so please don't delay in booking.
