The National Spiritual Assembly encourages friends to book promptly and
accurately. It is vital you book in advance for the Festival so that our hosts
can make the necessary arrangements for accommodation and catering. Those
bringing children and junior youth must also make it known so that suitable
arrangements can be made.
