Lyrids 2018 Fees

Fees for the full weekend are $195. Full Weekend Registration includes everything: all workshops, Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch, plenty of snacks, and all the dancing!

Part-time registrations will be accepted but to encourage full participation, priority will be given to full weekend registrations, and an early-bird discount for the full weekend ($185) is offered until March 1. Scholarships are available for up to 50% off. As well as scholarships for youth and elders, we need people who don’t mind missing a few hours of dancing to work in the festival market and help with snacks, for example. If that appeals to you, please apply on the registration form. There are a limited number of work exchange positions available.

Everyone will be expected to help where needed – for example, moving tables before and after meals.
