How to book 

Tickets are now on sale – click this link to book your place! The event website includes the different tickets available, plus the hotel accommodation. Note that this website is to book your tickets and/or accommodation only, not to make payment. The total cost will therefore always show as “free”. See below for information on how to pay. 


How to pay 

The cost of each element you purchase will show on your booking confirmation. Payment for both tickets and accommodation is made via transfer to the NPUA account, the details of which are below. If you are currently taking NPUA appointments, you can use your appointment expenses to contribute towards the cost of your tickets and/or hotel.
