Bring a Friend‘ Special Offer
Available from 8 May – 20 June

You and your friend receive 10% off your ticket!

How it works:
For each new booking where they mention your name on the booking form in the field ‘How did you hear about the Writers’ Weekend?’, we’ll give BOTH YOU AND YOUR FRIEND 10% off of the package price.  The discount applies to each new booking, up to ten bookings! This offer is available for new bookings of a Weekend, Saturday, Sunday or Writers’ Circle package referred by those that book, or have already booked a Weekend, Saturday, Sunday or Writers’ Circle Package.

For example:
1. Purchase a Weekend, Saturday, Sunday or Writers’ Circle package (deadline to book a Writers’ Circle seat is 13 May!).  This special is also available to those that have already booked a Weekend, Saturday, Sunday or Writers’ Circle package.
2. Refer a friend that purchases a Weekend package and you both receive a £27.50 refund!
3. 
Refer another friend, who purchases a Saturday package for £150, and you receive another £27.50 refund and they receive a £15.00 refund (10% off of their package price).
4. Refer another friend, who purchases a Weekend package, and you both receive a £27.50 refund!

In this example, by referring three friends, you’d receive a whopping £82.50 in refunds!  Plus, all of the friends that you referred can also refer new friends, too, for additional refunds (up to ten refunds in total)!
