The cost for Day 1 Tuesday 11 January, is $50 for adults and $30 for students and school aged children. This will include your ticket for the opening concert in Taupo and drinks and a simple dinner in the evening. For Day 2, 3, 4, and 5, the daily cost is $150 for adults and $100 for students and school aged children. This includes use of venue, attendance at all talks, classes, and concerts, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (also a BBQ dinner on Day 2).
