.The Official RuneFest 2019 Tees and Hoodies are also available for pre-order (until Sunday August 18th)!
This year's explosive design is inspired by the majestic volcano that can be found on both Fossil Island and the Land Out of Time. It's the perfect thing to wear while you're roaming the prehistoric jungle and excavating fossils at RuneFest- or while you're hacking through the weeds in your own back garden. We don't judge.
If you've already bought your ticket for RuneFest 2019, we've sent you an email with further instructions. Check your mailbox! If you haven't bought your RuneFest ticket yet, you'll be able to add your chosen items to your order before checkout.
Pre-ordering saves you money on non-personalised tees (£2 off event RRP) and hoodies (£5 off event RRP). It's also the only way to get your tee personalised and guarantee a tee or hoodie in your size. XXS, S and XXL and XXXL non-personalised tees are only available to pre-order.
