We expect there won’t be any COVID-19 restrictions in place, but we want to make the in-person event safe. We are limiting the number of participants and have a room layout allowing for space. We will have a good ventilation (please dress warmly) and sanitisation in place. If you’d prefer, you are very welcome to wear a face mask and we, where possible and viable, welcome participants carrying out rapid lateral flow tests before attending.
