  • 2. Why are you charging for tickets?
     

     

    We made a difficult decision to charge for tickets.  Whilst we would love the event to be free to all,  charging for tickets is necessary in order to help cover a proportion of the significant costs associated with putting on such a high profile and complex event.

    The ticket price does represent excellent value for money-  for £30 you get 25 amazing speakers- many of whom would attract a fee of £200 or more if you were to go and see them at a conference.  For many of our speakers, this is one of the first times they have spoken in East Anglia.

    You also  get a great networking opportunity, and the chance to be part of the conversation about how we can think differently about education.

  • 4. How much will tickets cost?
     

    Tickets will cost just £20.

    Whilst we would love for tickets to be free to everyone, charing this small amount for tickets is necessary in order to cover some of the costs associated with putting on such a high-profile event.
