Events

The events occur twice a year in the autumn (April/May) and spring (September/October) and typically run for 4 days; Thursday afternoon to Sunday evening.

Although the weekend event is the focal point, the Transition Evening is the official start of the event and is compulsory to attend. The Regathering that occurs 2-3 weeks after the weekend is the official completion. It is highly recommended that attendance is prioritised over other commitments to ensure completion of the process.

If you are interested in joining us on an event, attendance at the Information Evening is highly recommended. Please contact us if you require further information or are keen to attend but can’t make it to the Information Evening.
