Your handy guide to SHARP Season 23

November 8, 2017

 

We love our new website, but thought you might like to see a quick summary of what's on the SHARP menu for 2018.

Read on and bookmark this post to use when you're making your plans for the next summer (recommended by 9.5 out of 10 archaeologists as the most effective way to stay warm over winter... ok, we made that up).

 

Or just book now! Prices will go up for the first time in three years on 1 January (i.e. quite a big jump) so get in now for the financial reward and smug feeling that comes with getting your life organised nice n' early...
