Help with travel costs to London

UPDATE: We’ve now had to finalise the bursaries, as it’s getting too close to the event to book and post travel tickets over the Christmas period, so we won’t be able to consider any more.

But if you’re travelling, and the costs are proving a difficulty, we can still certainly look at waiving the £5 ticket price as some contribution. Get in touch using the contact page if you would like us to do this, and we can arrange something.


We’ve tried to keep costs of this event as low as we can, to let as many people as possible have a chance of attending. The £5 tickets include a (rather basic) lunch and refreshments during the day.

We realise that a bigger cost for many people though will be getting to London in the first place. Trains don’t come cheap unfortunately.

To help get around this, we aim to put some of the cash from the tickets into a (very) limited number of travel bursaries for people who couldn’t otherwise afford the trip to London.

Let us know (use our contact page) if you’d like to make a case to receive one of these bursaries (we’d book tickets for you for pre-specified advance train travel to London). We’ll contact those that we’re able to help a bit nearer the time.

Make sure you contact us and get an answer before registering on this site, in case we’re not able to help as many people as ask for travel assistance.
