We are going to trial a new booking system for the day trips starting with the normally exceedingly popular Andrew Davies walking tour. On Thursday 18th July at 9am and no earlier, you send an email to: judith@wargrave.me or day-visits.henley@theartssociety.org saying you would like one or two places on The Andrew Davies Day visit.  Please be advised that I will book the places according to the time that you send the email.  If it is before 9 am, your request will go to the back of the queue. If you can't use email please ask a friend or family member to book for you. I will then email you back to say that you have a place or not, with a copy of the programme for the trip and details of how to send me the payment.

If payment is not received by 1st August, then the next person on the waiting list will be given your place.
