Join the Reserves

The new smaller venue is already at 100% capacity, and as of 7th October, there are more than 25 people on the reserve list.

There are usually some withdrawals, and this year we expect rather more due to factors related to Covid.

So we're still accepting entries. These are added to the reserve list and will contacted if a place becomes available for them.
