Most workshops will be available both days (where possible) but some are space limited so we can not guarantee you get into them all if you can only make one day – but we will try. We do hope to ensure all those who attend both days get the chance to attend their preferred workshops.

Join the NWUK team for a sociable BBQ Supper on the Friday evening – entirely optional but we would love to see you all there.
