We can offer you accommodation at Heronbridge Retreat, situated adjacent to Heronbridge College in the same grounds and in close, walking proximity to the various Festival exhibitions, classrooms, shopping malls and lecture venues.

Sleeping facilities are in a cluster of five dormitory blocks on two floors. Access is by staircase only, no lifts. We have accommodation for up to 180 people in semi-partitioned dormitories. Each building has two central communal bathrooms and a cozy lounge with coffee and tea on tap. Bedding is supplied but you need to bring your own towel.
Please remember and respect that Heronbridge is an ALCOHOL FREE ZONE.

Tariffs are for bed and breakfast per person, in a hostel dormitory set-up.
Dinner is booked and paid for separately, if required. No dinners will be available on the evenings of official functions: we encourage you to attend the Welcome, Awards, and Farewell events. You can see these Function details HERE

At lunchtime it’s pay-as-you-go: you choose your meal from the mobile kiosks and tea garden that will be open to everyone at Festival each day.
