As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. For this event, there will be an overflow room, and you will be allocated a seat here when there are no available, accessible seats in the main event room. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event
