After many trials, tribulations, and technology fails, we can announce that tickets for IVFDF 2018 are now on sale! If you head over to our tickets page on the website, you can buy weekend, day, evening, and individual event tickets, as well as indoor camping and t-shirts. Our early bird prices run until the 31st of January, so get in there quick!
A quick word on waged/unwaged tickets. This is entirely for you, our attendees, to decide as to which best applies to you; if you are technically waged, but your budget is better suited to the “unwaged” bracket, please do not feel you have to pay more. The “unwaged” rate is there for those who genuinely can’t afford the “waged”, and while we’re not going to ask anyone to qualify their choice in either direction, we’d encourage those who can afford it to consider the “waged” rate. No set of words is going to cover all the options, but hopefully that makes enough sense to be going on with for the moment!
We are also opening applications for stewards. Stewards are what keep every IVFDF running, whether by sitting on the door of events, managing sleeping venues, acting as first aiders, or helping us with logistics. Whether you’ve done this before or not, you are very welcome to apply. Rewards include an obnoxiously brightly coloured t-shirt, a reduced price (or free) ticket, and the warm fuzzy feeling of having helped the Rustle, the committee, and IVFDF to keep the show on the road. Head on over to our stewarding application form to sign up!
Finally, no IVFDF would be complete without the Saturday afternoon Display Ceilidh. We are trying out a new idea, courtesy of IVFDF Central, that we hope will get more societies involved. Not every society wants to or is in a position to display something, but we want everyone to feel just as included nonetheless. Therefore, if your society is unlikely to be displaying, we would like to encourage you to send us the name (and calling card, if you’ve got it) of your society’s favourite ceilidh dance that you would like to share with IVFDF. We’ll need these a little ahead of time so our fabulous callers, Patrick and Sol, have time to get to grips with them. We are planning to have time for one item (performance or chosen dance) from each society, at the very least, but as we’ve never tried this before, we can’t make any promises just yet! The e-mail address is email@example.com, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with 🙂
We hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and New Year, and are looking forward to the countdown to IVFDF 2018 as much as we are! As always, if you have any problems or questions, please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org – please bear in mind we are as busy enjoying our holidays as you are, so we might not be as quick off the mark replying as usual.
Rustle and the IVFDF 2018 Committee
