CPW Booking Information

To book for a CPW event in 2017, use the Online Booking Form available on each Event page. The organiser will then contact you to arrange for you to complete your booking, with instructions as to how to pay your deposit (and membership subscription, if you haven't already paid for 2017). All cheques, etc. should be payable to "Catholic People's Weeks". We would however prefer you to pay by BACS transfer (see below).

How much will it cost?

  • The full prices and deposits for each event in 2017 are given in this table.
  • A discount of 25% is applicable if this is your first CPW event.
  • A "large family" discount applies to third (33%) and subsequent children (66%).
  • Children who are too young to use the crèche go free.

You will also need to become a member of CPW, if you are not already. This costs £15 for the whole year per household (£7.50 for low income households).

We offer special bursaries to long-term members of CPW who need a carer. Please contact the Treasurer (see also this page) for information.

Friendship Fund

If cost might be an issue, ask about a bursary from our "friendship fund". Contact either the booking co-ordinator for the event you want to attend, or the Treasurer, Mike Willcox, at , or the address given on this page. All enquiries are strictly confidential.

  • You can either complete the booking form available for each event on the relevant page (or print a copy of it or of the form in the Brochure - please use block capitals and send to the organiser via post or by email).
  • Before your place is confirmed, you must pay a deposit.

How to calculate your deposit

  • The deposits per person for each event are given in this table.

How to pay your deposit

We would prefer to receive your deposit electronically at our account:

  • Reference to include: the event code, your surname and initial e.g. "AL17SmithJ".
  • Event codes are given in the brochure and on the list of prices.

What happens next & settling your account

  • The balance of your account is payable during the week itself.

Third World Fund

At most CPW events, members are invited to make a contribution (if they wish) to our Third World Fund. They can also nominate one or more specific developing world charities to which the money collected is to be given - otherwise, the money is sent to CAFOD.

Other information

  • Parents may each bring one additional child who is not of their own immediate family (to all-age events); discounts do not apply to such children.
  • Sorry, but pets cannot be accommodated.
  • Smoking is never allowed in the buildings we use and most of the Centres place restrictions on smoking anywhere on the premises.
  • We try to ensure that centres are fully accessible, but please discuss specific needs (such as mobility or hearing) with the organiser.

Not coming this year?

  • CPW works to enrich the church through educating and empowering the laity - if you want to contribute to this work, please consider becoming a member anyway.
  • Members receive a newsletter two or more times a year, and are sent the brochure immediately it is published.
  • The cost per year is £15 per household (£7.50 for households on low incomes).
