Buy Tickets

Registration closed at midnight on May 10. We will be re-evaluating events based upon how many folks are registered, with the possibility of briefly re-opening some events for a few more people. Please email registrations@macintyregathering.com  if you would like to be put on a waiting list for specific events. Be sure to include the day and time for any events that take place on multiple days. 

Scroll down to see Event links, but please read the notices below first.

Registration AND ticket sales are open!
Click on the Registration event below to learn more about what is involved with registration for the Gathering as a whole. If you do not have an account, one will be created after you have paid for registration. Check your emails for your username and password once you’ve been through the checkout process for registration. We urge you to register as soon as possible, so that we can get some idea of attendance numbers to help in further planning. The last day for the first round of registration and for cancelation refunds is May 10. At that time, we will re-evaluate ticket distributions; if it turns out that some of the tickets allocated for specific categories have not been used, we may be able to release them for the other categories.

If an event is sold out, or only has youth and children tickets available

A few tickets are currently reserved for youth and children. If these are not sold we can release those to the adults later and they’ll be allocated to people on the waitlist in the order they joined. If you’d like to join the waitlist, please email registrations@macintyregathering.com. I will close the first round of registrations on 10 May, and this is the last date for refunds. On 11 May we can re-allocate unsold youth/child tickets to the adults, and reopen the second round of registrations during May. The last date for taking registrations will be 31 May. That will give us 6 weeks to plan with definite numbers!

Perle Hotel
Everyone is of course welcome to find accomodations on their own. However, we have reserved a block of rooms at the Perle Hotel, a luxury hotel in downtown Oban:

  • The Perle is offering us a 15% discount on our bookings. Room prices (all prices in GBP) are differentiated by room type; i.e., there will not be a “lottery” for the rooms as previously announced. Instead, you can book whatever room type suits your needs. Room prices after the 15% discount:
    • Standard Double Room, no view:  £177.65
    • Double Room with view:  £194.65
    • Superior Room:  £203.15
    • Superior Room with view:  £220.15
    • Junior Suite:  £237.15
    • Suites:  £254.15
  • You can book directly with the hotel. Rooms are now available in their system, but this means that the general public will also be able to book them. Thus, you should jump on reserving a room as soon as possible. You can book by going to https://app.thebookingbutton.com/properties/PerleObandirect and using the discount code “Macintyre” 

Hike to the summit of Cruachan, on Friday
Please “register” now so that we can gauge whether there is enough interest to organize the hike.

Cultural Programs
There will be cultural programs running at the Argyll Gathering Halls throughout the week. See   https://register.macintyregathering.com/cultural-programs/ for a tentative discussion of what might be offered. You will not need to register ahead for these programs, since you can pay at the door.

Events
Registration for individual events below are open. You can read a detailed description of each event by clicking to expand the text. However, please be aware that we might need to change any of these events because we can’t predict what the demand will be – as the Gathering is run by volunteers and on behalf of a charity, we are not looking to make a profit but we can’t afford to make a loss. We will do our very best to provide everything as described but ask for your understanding if something needs to be changed.

Please read the extra info about events and how to buy tickets here

You will need to be logged in to purchase tickets to events. Your account would have been created when you registered. Please locate the email with your username and password and use that information to log in. Also, as you add events to your cart, you will need to refresh the Buy Tickets page each time you return to it if you want the Cart on the right to be updated. Alternately, just click on the Buy Tickets link at the top of the page, rather than just using your browser’s Back button. 

Meals
If a meal or food is included in an event, that is noted in the event description; otherwise, assume that you will be on your own for meals.

Good to Know
A new page has been added — Please Read! — with information that might make your trip more enjoyable. Please check back often, as we will add more information as it occurs to us.
