Also available now are tickets to our Charity Dinner, where you can help raise money for the Good Thinking Society, as well as enjoying a meal in the company of our speakers.

As ever, parents of children under 13 can take advantage of our crèche, supervised and entertained by fully-screened and registered professional childcare workers. This year, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we are delighted to announce that use of our crèche comes free of charge! Find out more about how to book a place at the crèche.

There’s still plenty for us to announce, including panel sessions, podcast recordings, evening entertainment and more speakers, plus a few extra surprises too... so be sure to follow us on Twitter or Facebook to make sure you don’t miss anything.

So book your ticket now and we’ll see you in October!
