To avoid disappointment players must book their accommodation early.

We have a limited number of rooms and our allocation will be available until six weeks prior to the event giving entrants enough time to reserve a room ... but don't leave it too late! After this date the Biba rate and/or accommodation cannot be guaranteed. If you want to stay-and-play and pay a reduced Entry Fee then you need to reserve your room before the deadline.

Players on the Biba Rate get the benefit of a reduced Tournament Registration Fee. By paying the reduced fee players can effectively reduce the total accommodation cost by £10 per player.

NB: The savings are via payment of the reduced Tournament Registration Fee and are not applied to the actual rate paid.

It is essential you book before the allocation expires
