The day will start with some introductions maybe some information from the sponsors. Then its straight into the first session. Each session will be a different area or room, once the session is finished there will be a short break, maybe sometime for a tea/coffee, chat with fellow delegates or a sponsor. Next its into another session with some more learning and fun. Lunch will be in the middle of the day, this will be for about an hour plenty of time for chatting, chilling, pondering or what ever takes your fancy. Time for the afternoon sessions just the same as the morning sessions. To round off the day after the final session, everyone back together for the sponsors prize giveaway. Finally if you still have any energy left time to pop down to a local pub for some more chat and fun to round off the day.
We will announce the sessions before the event so you will have a chance to see which ones you want to attend. Remember we have photographs from previous events so have a look at those too.
