Professionally waged: 220; Fully waged: £190; Low waged: £150; Unwaged: £120

After this, the next Wild Weekend is looking for a new venue, as the Pierian Centre is sadly closing, and won't be until at least the first months of 2012. Email me to be kept informed of dates as they are confirmed.

Wilder Weekend:
No dates currently planned.

Note: you must have completed a Wild course before getting Wilder! Discount if booked together with Wild Weekend.

All courses cost 220 / 190 / 150 / 120

The fees listed above apply to: the professionally waged, fully waged, low waged, and unwaged, respectively, but the discounts apply only if you cannot afford the already bargain price!

To book:
Option 1. Send the full fee by cheque.

Option 2. Send full fee online by credit or debit card to paypal@timsheppard.co.uk - go to www.paypal.co.uk or email me if you don't know how to use Paypal.

Cheques must be made payable to 'Tim Sheppard', and sent to: 4 Oakenhill Road, Brislington, Bristol BS4 4LR, England. Tel. (0117) 977-6354. Email: wildtimes@timsheppard.co.uk with any questions. If you have problems finding the money in advance, talk to me for arrangements.

The fee is refundable up to six weeks before the course starts, if you have to change your plans. The fee less a deposit of £20 is refundable up to three weeks before the course starts. If the course is cancelled, all fees will be returned.

The Wild Weekend takes place at the Pierian Centre, near the M32 into central Bristol (see here for directions). If you live out of town, I can try and help you find accommodation, possibly with others on the weekend. You'll be sent a welcome pack with full directions, map, and schedule after receipt of your deposit.

Lunches and refreshments:
Lunch is not inclusive in the course fee. If sufficient participants book lunch in advance the Pierian Centre can provide a nice catered buffet for an extra fee. You are welcome to bring your own packed lunch instead, which can be eaten in the same buffet area. In the breaks hot and cold drinks, fruit, and biscuits will be available for free.

Give your friends a gift voucher, at no cost to you, and earn yourself a discount! Or bring a friend or two and all of you get discounts. See the details on this page.

A wide variety of people and ages attend, many with no previous experience. The games ensure that you'll fit in and enjoy yourself whatever your reasons for coming.

These courses are popular and have been running for a number of years, so are often fully booked some time in advance. Please book, or at least let me know your intentions, as early as possible.
