Fantastic event line up for a worthwhile cause. Not enough notice though - will there be further events please?
19 Nov, 2013
The tickets have been on sale since July! Mr Scott does one of these each year at about this time, he manages to get top quality speakers (Last year we had Joe Brown, Tony Streather, Marko Prezeji & others). They are excellent run events, very low key and relaxed without any people running around with headsets etc. The line up of speakers that Mr Scott gets for one day is very impressive compared to what say Kendal gets in four days. I don't know how he does it (probably because he is Doug Scott!) but last yrs event was brilliant, and if this one comes even close I'll be pleased.
