The standard rate is £42 per person per Study Day.
You may have your first Study Day at the introductory rate of £25.
Young Persons Rate
We are keen to encourage young people, who might otherwise not get the chance, to develop an informed interest in the Medieval period. Therefore a discounted rate of £25 is available on request to people up to and including the age of 25 for a maximum of 6 Study Days in total. There a limited number of these discounted places for each Study Day so apply early. Under 18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. Discounted rates are not available retrospectively so please make your request at the time of booking.
If you need transport to Sutton Hoo and your ‘driver’ has no direct interest in the Study Day they may sit with you without charge, unless the day is full in which case they will need to pay the normal £42 fee. It is down to their judgement as to whether they themselves are benefiting from the day and ought to pay or not. Otherwise the driver may wish to visit the exhibition, walk the Sutton Hoo grounds or visit the picturesque local towns or coast there is lots in the area to do.
From time to time we have bursaries available to those who otherwise would not be able to attend. Usually these are reserved for students (young and old) or for those with a special interests in a particular Study Day. The bursary can also cover travel costs if necessary. If you would like to take advantage of these please email Cliff or give him a ring.
The bursary enables the applicant to attend for just £5 on condition that they write a short paragraph to the benefactor (Barbara Conduitt) indicating how they benefited from attending the study day, for example:
- what you learnt on the day,
- perhaps learning something new and unexpected,
- helped you to decide to study medieval topics further in future, either in your spare time or as a career
- kindled an interest
- made some useful contacts, both with the other participants and the speaker
- helped build a wider-ranging CV
- without the bursary I would not been able to afford/justify the costs
- encouraged you to read more about the topic
- anything else which was special about the day
Just select a few relevant points to include in the paragraph
Registered Carer’s Rate
If it is essential that your registered carer accompanies you they may come at no charge. However if the Study Day is over-subscribed they will be expected to either pay in full or occupy themselves elsewhere until their services are needed. The National Trust site offers many opportunities for visitors.

Laptops and Cameras:
Laptops are not permitted during the presentations. We know that a few people like to make notes directly onto laptops, however the noise can be a major distraction to both the speaker and other participants.
Touch sensitive tablets are permitted if keyclick is turned off and they are used in a sensitive manner so as not to disturb other participants. Otherwise you will be asked to cease using it.
Video and sound recording is not permitted
If you wish to take photos please ask the speaker beforehand, usually the answer will be no. If the speaker does agree, cameras should only be used infrequently and in no way should their use disturb other participants.
