    sounds wonderful. are we able to come and go, attending the workshops we want to see, or must we attend all of it?

    It maybe possible to come & go throughout the day but numbers will be limited as we have small areas to work in. If it becomes crowded we will have to close the entrance. It will be a gold coin each time you enter the event.
