We are pleased to annouce that we will be holding two Ideas Exchange workshops in November this year to help event organisers prepare for About Time 2015.
Both sessions are free and a great opportunity to meet other event organisers and the About Time Team and chat about your plans for next year’s history festival.
Whether you're new to About Time or a regular participant, you're welcome to come along and share your ideas.
