SWASH Earlybird booking 90 + 7 for the handling session, excellent value!
http://www.thebfhs.org.uk/shop#!/~/category/id=4017737&offset=0&sort=normal

Compare that with 200 here:

But why is SWASH charging 40 for "Visitor Entry Only (-50.00)" ? Visiting the RA is still free!
I think I need to order 1 "BFHS Member full weekend and Gala meal" and one "Gala meal"... What is the extra 40 for 'visitor Only' for?

Hi Alan,

It's not that sort of "visitor entry". Last year there were people who wanted to attend everything without actually taking part in the workshops - so it's not "public viewing" but "up close non-physical participation"

Cheers,

Mark

Oh,

Also a "visitor" can also watch all the lectures, take part in the handling sessions, etc.

'up close non-physical participation'..reminds me of a few night clubs in Germany :)

Mark, thanks for the clarification. Rita isn't interested in watching it all (although she 'might' watch if I enter the tournament), whe'll just wander in and out occasionally. So I don't think I need a visitor place for her?

The complete programme for SWASH including class descriptions and biographies is now online - http://thebfhs.org.uk/default.asp?iID=GEGKMK

This coming SWASH is one of the largest ever:

  • 35 Sessions of workshops, presentations, tours, tournaments, etc.

  • 22 Instructors and Presenters

  • Guest instructors from Austria, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands

  • Handling Sessions with the Royal Armouries

  • A new Archive Tour with the Royal Armouries

  • Four tournaments

  • One to One Sessions and Freeplay

  • Gala Meal in the War Galleries of the Royal Armouries

  • AMEK fight demonstration prior to the Gala Meal

Due to delays in making the full programme available the Earlybird bookings have been extended until 9 February.

Last year SWASH was full and several people could not attend so you are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.
