NEW THIS YEAR! - we have added a Children's Area where there will be activities especially for them. There will also be kite making in or around the Kite Arena for children of all ages - 4 to 40 and beyond!

 

Please note: All timings and events are subject to change, although we will endeavour to keep to time as much as possible. Each talk should finish about 10 minutes prior to the next one starting to ensure everyone has time between talks and events for drinks and comfort breaks!
