    1. Hi Julia,
      Foyles are kindly running the booking side of the event, so it’s best to get in touch with them to see if this is possible. We’re hoping that there will be edited video highlights of the event to post on the website in the following weeks, so those who can’t attend don’t miss out on any pearls of wisdom.
      Best wishes
