Frequently Asked Questions
First of all, well done! Good choice. Now all you need to do is turn up on the day. We check you're on the list and give you an event pass and registration pack.
QED operates on a guest-list basis. Simply give your name at the registration desk and we'll handle the rest.
Student tickets are available for full time students only, with any recognised student ID. If you book a student ticket for QED, you must bring your valid student ID (e.g. Uni Card, NUS Card) with you to the event.
If you are unable to produce valid student ID when collecting your event pass, you will be required to pay the £40 difference before you will be admitted to the event.
We have worked hard to keep costs down and keep the ticket price as low as possible for QED. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to offer concessions beyond our existing student offer.

For 2013, we have made childcare available for QED attendees, at a cost of £99 per child. This covers childcare from 8am to 5pm on each day of the event. We are also able to cater for disabled children.
