What’s included in the price?

The ticket includes the booked room, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Biscuits, coffee, tea and water will be available throughout the day. Drinks at the bar are not included.

We do not make any profit from the ticket price. The price might be reduced by sponsorships, so make sure to spread the word so all attendees can benefit from cheaper tickets!

Food that respects your dietary preferences will be provided Thursday dinner till Sunday lunch. Water, tea, coffee and refreshments and the accommodation in beautiful rooms in the house itself is included.

The venue has amazing grounds to relax and wander in and boast a gym, sauna, steam room, indoor pool and tennis court if you fancy.

The training day is paid for separately (and includes lunch on Thursday).

What are the COVID mitigations?

COVID-19 rates across Europe are still high. We want to keep attendees safe, while at the same time allowing for as much familiarity and community spirit as is possible. For this reason our policy at the conference will be:

What if I don’t know anyone in the crafter community?

A new group can be intimidating, but we hope you give SoCraTes a try. The SoCraTes community aims to be open and inclusive to everyone. In addition, we are hoping to provide some Conference Buddies so you can attend together.

What should I know before deciding to attend?

By booking, you agree to follow our Code of Conduct. Please read our full code of conduct before buying a ticket, discussing online and before participating to the event. But please don’t feel intimidated by it - these are simple rules, and they will make life better for everyone at the event.

We will have some priority tickets reserved and free for under-indexed groups in tech. Details will follow shortly.

How much does it cost?

We sell tickets for the open space at £725. This will likely be reduced by sponsorships, which will be equally applied to all tickets. We will refund the difference.

The training day is £358. There is an option to arrive the Wednesday evening for an extra £110 (accomodation + dinner & breakfast).
