Other Offsite Accommodation

We tried to block book rooms at the following hotels, in Barrow in Furness, however, we were not able to secure a good rate, and so finally it is cheaper for individuals to book themselves online. We will offer shuttle buses however from these 2 hotels – these can be booked through the Festival booking form (for new bookings), or through the ‘add option’ facility in the booking cart (existing bookings).

Shuttles will be available for week 2, beginning in the evening after the Introductory Teaching on Thursday 30 July. They will run daily until Saturday morning 8 August.
