Accessing the Festival

In the week prior to the festival, all registered participants and schools will receive an email containing the link and password to the festival site . This site will contain the links and passwords for each of the live and recorded sessions. It will also contain information about how participants can access a test session to test their connection. These test sessions enable our team to support you prior to the festival to ensure there won’t be technical issues when you try to access a live session. All sessions for the festival are recorded so if you miss a session or have a problem connecting, you will be able to watch it on demand.  Recordings are uploaded to the site at the end of each week.   Recordings will be available for twelve months after the festival. 

Cancellation Policy

Due to the commitments made contracting presenters for the festival, a 50% cancellation fee is charged for registrations cancelled within three weeks of the festival.   Please note that a 100% cancellation fee is charged once the website and password to access festival content is provided to you or your school.
