Leeds workshop NOW ONLINE!

Leeds workshop NOW ONLINE!

Event open for new bookings

Due to the current Covid situation, we have taken the difficult decision to move our Leeds in-person workshop to an online event.

Two of our scheduled speakers have tested positive for Covid, and several participants have been in touch with concerns or who have also tested positive. We may also not be able to provide staff to manage the event because of Covid contacts.

With so many people attending, we feel that the responsible thing to do in the circumstances is to move the event online.

We hope to reschedule the workshop in Leeds sometime next year when conditions allow. 

 

Event is NOW OPEN for new bookings!

 

This is good news for those who couldn't make the journey to Leeds. You can now book your place to join the online event.

We have a fantastic programme for the day:
