Area 11 Festival 2016

We had an amazing Festival with Hart Morris and Timbré!
Thank you so much Hart and the members of Timbré! We learned so much from all of you!
Our pre-conference workshop with Josh Fitzgerald was wonderful too!

Registrants who live outside a 50 mile radius from the hotel
and choose not to stay at the Little America Hotel must pay an
0ff-site lodging surcharge of $100.00.

keeping all costs as low as possible.

even if you cannot attend the entire Festival.

We are also offering an Optional Conference Choir, for those Polished Bronze ringers who just can’t get enough ringing! Hart Morris will lead this choir and music will have to be prepared in advance.  More details will be released in the coming months.  You must be a registered Festival attendee to participate in the Conference Choir.
