Quaker Wiston Weekend 2019
Sorry, we're all full up for this year (66 Quakerly people from south and east Scotland). Please do consider coming in 2020. Bookings open in January!
Best wishes from the Quaker Wiston team...
Our Wiston Weekend is growing every year in depth of programme but remains an small intimate group of about 35-50, about a third of whom are under 18.
There are outdoor activities, walks, talks, creative arts and writing and downtime together as community.
There is a shared creche available for much of the time, a camp-fire and the Saturday night traditional bring-and-share ceilidh!
Our event is supported by South East Scotland Area Meeting but open to Quakers and attenders and their families from further afield. Why not join us this year? Hope you can make it!
A note on this year's pricing structure
The organising group for this year's Wiston weekend are keen to make the weekend as accessible as possible financially for everyone. We want to make sure our community-building is open to everyone.
We are therefore working with a flexible pricing structure. Wiston charge us different rates for different ages of children, and offer a discount to campers so our prices also reflect this. We are aware this makes a complicated ticketing structure, so please get in contact if you want any help.
We have set our standard rates based on the prices we get charged by Wiston Lodge for food and accommodation. A standard adult place is £110 plus service charge, with discounts for children and campers.
For those who can afford to pay a bit more we are introducing a new supporter band. We are asking people to consider paying this if they have an income of over £35 000. A supporter adult place is £138 plus service charge, with discounts for children and campers.
This will allow us to trial a limited number of places at a concessionary rates aimed at people who cannot afford the standard rate. This is likely to include families with annual household incomes below £25 000. A concessionary adult place is £55 plus service charge, with discounts for children and campers. We calculate that for every two people who comes at the higher rate we will cover the cost of one person on the concessionary rate.
Please take care to answer fully the questionnaire when booking your tickets as this is the info on age, rooms and dietary requirements, etc, we need for Wiston Lodge.
THANK YOU for your patience and support as we continue to develop the new system.
