The Friendly Booking Office opened at the beginning of November and we've been pleased to hear from old friends and newcomers. 

We hope to send the full programme out to ticket holders just before the festival, and meanwhile post information about the workshops in the articles about the artistes and on our facebook page.

**We are looking for someone to join our succesful management team, particularly with admin/computer experience and have the opportunity to shadow those of us who intend to retire after EIFF 2018!  We need someone to take on the Financial role asap.
Jean and Ron, the International organisers would also like to "retire" in 2018.
