Last year we were very nearly full to capacity and it may be necessary to impose a limit on the number of units participating. We will accept applications on a strictly “first come, first served” basis using the date your formal acceptance (and £20 entry fee) of the invitation arrives with us. If the event is able to cover its costs there will be a repayment to participants (last year we were able to refund the full entry fee).
