Cost: As we would love to have as many as possible attend the Unit will be subsidising Expo and the all Inclusive Cost will be £300. This includes Accommodation, Food, Transport & all Activities. For those who have already paid towards the cancelled Expo 2020 or our planned Expo to Spain 2021 we will transfer over you payments if you are coming on our re-arranged Expo.

Whilst we are hopeful we will be able to go on Expo 2021 there remains of course a possibility that due to Covid we will not be able to. In the event we have to cancel then all payments will be refunded.
