QED Tickets on sale from May 7th, 2024

Published 2 April 2024 at 10:23

The wait is almost over – tickets for QED 2024 will be available to buy from 3pm UK time on May 7th, 2024.

QED 2024 promises to be one of the most hotly-anticipated events in the critical thinking calendar, attracting more than 600 attendees and speakers from all over the world to spend a fun-packed weekend at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel.

Each ticket grants attendees full access to all of our content across the weekend, including a main stage of fascinating and entertaining talks, a full schedule of panel discussions, a lively podcast room, a hands-on workshop room, our evening of entertainment and the Ockham Awards presentation from The Skeptic magazine.

QED 2024 will take place on the 19th-20th October 2024. For the first time, this year we’ll be releasing early-bird tickets costing £164 for a full weekend ticket. The early-bird rate will last until 2nd September 2024, giving attendees plenty of time to pick up a ticket at the lower price.

We will once again have a full on-site creche facility available for free to parents who wish to use it, plus our all-day SkeptiCamp event on Friday 18th October will be free for anyone to attend, no ticket required.

For those looking to get a headstart on hotel booking, you can secure a room at the Mercure at a special discount price of £135 per night for a single room, or £147 for a double, by calling the hotel on 0161 751 1412 (Option 1), and quoting the discount code 2410QEDBED between 9am - 5pm on weekdays (calls outside of these hours will be diverted to a central reservations team, who do not have access to this rate). We’d also advise shopping around, as better rates may be available.

We’ll be announcing our first set of speakers in the near future, so mark your calendars for 3pm BST on May 7th, 2024, and keep your eyes peeled for further announcements.
