Cost

The gathering fee is comprised of three elements.

  • a contribution to the cost of holding gathering (£200 per person for the week – paid by everyone);
  • your choice of accommodation type; and
  • whether you choose half board or self-catering.

Children and young people only pay for accommodation and catering. Part time residents will be charged pro rata. For Junior Yearly Meeting there is also a fee of £40 for lunches which are included in the programme.

What if I need financial help to come?

No Friend should be prevented from attending Yearly Meeting Gathering because they can't afford it.

If you need financial help please speak to Friends in your local or area meeting or your worshipping community. They may be able to help. If they can't, you can ask for financial support from the Yearly Meeting bursary fund when you book. This will help towards travel and accommodation costs.

Donations to the bursary fund are very welcome. Details of how to give can be found on the Yearly Meeting Bursaries page, or you can contact Ann Pfeiffer (email annp@quaker.org.uk or phone 020 7663 1053).
