GODDESS CONFERENCE 2021 – FAQS
GODDESS CONFERENCE 2021 – FAQS
What is the difference between the in-person and online Goddess Conference?
The in-person Goddess Conference takes place in Glastonbury, UK. The Conference has functioned like this for almost 25 years. However, on the 25th year we had to go online, which was done with great success.
From then on, the Goddess Conference offers both an in-person (in Glastonbury and online version. The online version of the Goddess Conference has the same theme, and a similar programme. Some presenters you can only experience in the online programme. The online Conference is available from anywhere in the world, in any time-zone.
Does the Goddess Conference also allow men and other genders to participate?
Absolutely, we welcome all Goddess loving and Goddess curious people. The Goddess Conference promotes inclusivity, which in practical sense means that people are welcome in any way they identify. We ask from the presenters to have their offerings available to all who identify as a certain gender. If this means that they cannot offer a specific piece of work, then that part of their contribution cannot be offered during the Conference.
TICKETS and PAYMENT
Why can I only buy an online ticket?
The online ‘Venus’ ticket is on sale from 1st February 2021.
This ticket will give you access to the online Tribal Star Queen Goddess Conference, for the Conference week and the whole of August. The Venus ticket can be upgraded to the ‘in-person’ Rhiannon ticket if you wish to do so at Beltane (1st May 2021), when we can give you more clarity about the in-person Goddess Conference.
Please consider that you will be supporting the conference when you buy your Venus ticket now.
What happens when I book a ticket on the website?
When you buy your ticket online, you will be sent a confirmation and later an e-ticket which includes the description of your purchase as well as a unique number. You can print this ticket off or safe it on your phone if you attend the in-person Conference. When you come to the conference, we will be able to find your name and number when you show either a printed ticket or the ticket on your phone.
When you have bought a ticket for the online Goddess Conference, you will be provided with further information about which platform will be used to access the online Conference closer to the date!
It is important that you give us your correct email address and update us if it changes!
Both for the in-person and online Conference all communication will happen through email contact! Please also make sure that you check your spam/junk box for information of the Goddess Conference regularly.
Make sure you do not miss out!
Can I pay in cash or by cheque?
We encourage everybody to pay directly via PayPal. This method of paying is linked to the tickets that are on our website. If there is no possibility to pay by PayPal, then we can arrange a bank transfer. If you do not have online banking, you can go to your bank and pay directly into the Goddess Conference’s bank account, but only after direct communication with us. You can pay in cash on the door of the in-person Conference, at registration. If you buy a full conference ticket however, it is more economical to buy the ticket in advance!
I live abroad how can I best pay for my ticket?
If you live abroad it is best to pay via PayPal or if that is not available, via TransferWise directly into the Goddess Conference’s bank account (if you pay via TransferWise, please let us know!)
PayPal won’t accept my credit/debit card
There is not much we can do about PayPal, but it is always worth trying again, perhaps with a different card. Failing that, you can pay us via TransferWise or by direct banking.
My computer crashed mid-payment by PayPal
It is unlikely any money was taken from your account, but if you have a PayPal account then you can easily check. If you receive notification from us that we have received an order, it doesn’t necessarily mean that
payment was taken as unpaid orders are placed “on hold”. Do contact us if you would like more information.
I ordered a ticket but gave the wrong email/name/address. What should I do?
Contact us with details and we’ll do what we can to help.
Can I cancel my booking for a refund?
The Conference does not give full refunds. If for any reason the in-person does not go ahead, your ticket will be automatically transferred to the online Conference (with a repayment of the difference). However, you can sell your ticket to another participant, if you let us know by offering their full name and details.
I am ordering my tickets very late and am worried I won’t receive them by post in time.
We do not send out paper tickets, since all will be handled via email. All you need to produce at registration is either a printout or phone image of your ticket with your name and booking number. We will have the rest of your information.
Can I book the workshops I want to attend?
We encourage everybody to book their workshops at Registration on the Tuesday of the Conference, to give everyone a fair chance. If there is something you particularly want to attend, contact us and we will see what we can do.
The workshops of the online Goddess Conference are available for everyone with a ticket and will be available for the whole of August!
Can I pay cash at the door?
Yes, in many cases – but it is better to book in advance, to ensure you don’t miss out on anything. It’s also possible that some popular events simply won’t have room on the day. And especially when you buy a full conference ticket it is worth buying the ticket in advance.
Can I buy a part ticket for the Goddess Conference?
Yes, you can. All part tickets, weekend tickets and young people tickets for the in-person Conference will be available from the 1st May.
There are no part tickets for the online Goddess Conference, it is a full ticket only event.
How do I apply to work for my ticket as a volunteer/Melissa?
We have limited volunteer/Melissa spaces in exchange for a full Conference ticket. We have 4 different categories of Melissa, which are allocated to different areas of skills. The four areas are: tech-skills – build and design skills, registration and general support. If you want to be considered, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted back by 1 of the Melissae pillar holders.
I have been approved as a Melissa – how do I pay the deposit?
Please note that we do require a small deposit to be considered as a Melissa. The Volunteer Team circle pillars will give you a special link to the correct page on our website. If that has not happened, or you have a problem, please contact us for help.
I have been told I can have a Kwan Yin (compassion) ticket – how can I order one?
You can order the Kwan Yin for both the in-person and online Goddess Conference from the 1st May. There will be a link on the website for both Kwan Yin tickets. This link will send your request to someone who will approve your ticket. The person who approved your ticket would normally give you a special link to the correct page on our website. If that has not happened, or you have a problem, please contact us for help.
CONFERENCE WEEK ONLINE
Information about the set-up and practical organisation of the online Goddess Conference will be given to you by email and via the website closer to the time.
Do I need to attend registration on Tuesday if I have a day ticket for later in the week?
No. We will have details of your booking at the front desk.
Can you suggest accommodation?
We do not make recommendations, please check the local different Glastonbury websites, AirBnB and Booking.com. We do recommend that you book your accommodation early, because Glastonbury is busy in the Summer months and the B&B’s get booked up early.
Where do I eat during the Conference Week?
We have a lovely cafe in the Town Hall during the week, which serves drinks, cakes and lunches. For dinner there are many wonderful places to choose from in town, including vegetarian and vegan restaurants and cafes.
Are there any free events at the conference?
There are Exhibitions in the Miracles Room (in the Glastonbury Experience) and in The Brighde Room in Goddess House (Magdalene Street). You are also welcome to join in the procession, which leaves from the Town Hall at approximately 11.30am on the Sunday. And don’t miss a chance to visit the craft stalls in the small Town Hall, which are also free to visit (venues may change from year to year, but you can ask at the conference front desk).
There will be free online ceremonial events on Facebook, please like our Facebook page to be able to receive these free events: https://www.facebook.com/GLASTONBURYGODDESSCONFERENCE .
There is disabled entrance to the Town Hall via the Information Centre (next to the Car Park on Magdalene Street) There is hearing loop in the Town Hall for those who are deaf.
Those who need special assistance, please contact us beforehand, so we can get you in contact with the right people or discuss necessary arrangements.
I am disabled – can I still come to the Conference?
Glastonbury Town Hall is accessible to wheelchairs but many of the other buildings we use unfortunately are not. We do have Melissae who can assist, and a special team who might be able to offer an alternative if you’re unable to walk on the landscape.
Can I bring my child to the in-person Conference?
Sure – there are children’s workshops and other events for young people as well as special ‘Artemis’ tickets for children and young people.
Can I bring my dog to the conference?
Sorry – we can only accept guide/assistance dogs. If you’re planning to bring a guide or assistance dog, please do let us know beforehand, because we might need to make special arrangements for people with allergies.
What is the idea for the Gala Masque?
The Gala Masque is the opportunity to expressing your deeper Divine Self! Come in your finery as the Goddess or God you are. This is more than simply donning a mask or veil; we won’t let you in if you are not dressed up!
What time does the masque finish? I want to order a taxi.
Usually around 11pm. The taxis are right across the road from the Town Hall.
Can I have a stall/art exhibition?
You need to contact us by September after this year’s Conference to discuss a stall/exhibition for next year’s Conference. By the time the website goes life, we are very likely already fully booked.
Can I phone the conference?
Sure, the number it’s +44 (0)7948 079671
