Just a few days to go until the big day, and a veritable whirl of activity here in the Davis household as we put the last-minute preparations on Saturday's event. Really looking forward to running things, and the whole thing should be a blast.
Today I thought it'd be a good idea to pass on what I've dubbed the 'Key Information' from our event guide - if you're heading down, this will be everything you need to know on the day to get around the event and make the very most of your time there. If you're yet to be persuaded to get a ticket, then maybe this will give you a bit of assurance you'll be in safe hands! :-)
Anyway, here goes...
Edge-Lit – key information
On arrival, head to the registration desk to collect your registration badge. Please keep this badge with you at all times, as you will need to access all the sessions and films at the event.
Our staff will be on hand throughout the day at the registration desk should you have any queries about the event, or about Derby. Please note that our staff are all volunteers, so please treat them with respect. Our staff will be wearing red t-shirts.
Staff will be checking badges as you head into sessions – please be ready to show these to access events and schedule items.
PLEASE NOTE that our writing workshops are all included within the price, but numbers are STRICTLY LIMITED. Please head to the QUAD Box Office (opposite the main entrance downstairs) to collect your free ticket to the workshops of your choice. Event staff will ask for your ticket as you head into the session.
PLEASE NOTE you will also have to collect tickets to our film screenings in the same way. Again tickets are STRICTLY LIMITED, and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
The Meeting Room (reading space) and Digital Suite (workshops) are both on the first floor, while Cinemas 1 and 2 and The Box (book room) are found on the second floor. The registration desk is also on the second floor.
A range of drinks and food are available at QUAD from the bar. There are also many places to eat around Derby – please visit out registration desk for an information sheet. There is a lunch break from 1pm-2pm, and a dinner break from 7pm-9pm.
A handout on local travel information is also available from the reception desk.
PLEASE NOTE that schedule items may be subject to change in case of unexpected circumstances. No refunds will be given in case of author absence or enforced schedule changes.
Raffle tickets are available from the reception desk throughout the day at a cost of £1 per strip. A list of prizes is displayed around the building, with a full list also available at the reception desk.
If you're looking to pick up a ticket, you can either get yours on the day, book online at http://www.derbyquad.co.uk/special-event/edge-lit-day-ticket or give QUAD Box Office a call on 01332 290606.
Thanks a lot, and see you there!
