Entry Fee to Hellens

The entry to Hellens is £2.50 per day collected at the gate - keep your entry ticket for free re-admission for the rest of the day.  Children free.  We charge an entry fee to Hellens for two reasons:

1. The Big Apple Association directly organises many of the activities at Hellens so has the associated costs.

2. The fee also goes towards paying the costs of the entire Harvestime event. As collecting entry fees at all venues is impractical we hope you will see this as a pragmatic solution to covering our organisational costs.

Thank you for supporting The Big Apple Association.
