What do I need to bring?

We suggest you bring some spending money with you to grab a few Christmas presents from the market or to get a glass of mulled wine!

Please also remember to dress appropriately for the weather. Hats, scarf and gloves would be a great idea.

We would also advise you to bring a small packed lunch or some money to buy yourself lunch.

Q. What happens if it rains?

A. A bit of drizzle never hurt anyone. If it rains, assume the trip will go ahead unless we tell you otherwise. Cancelation will only be the last resort option. We'll cancel the trip if the trip leader decides that weather conditions are so severe as to jeopardise the safety of the participants.

A. I'm afraid not. This is a non-refundable ticket. Please make sure you're free before you sign up

Q. How do I redeem my ticket?

A. When you purchase a ticket you will recieve an email receipt of youir purchase. Though not a physical ticket, this is what we use for admission to our trips and is entirely valid.
