Plan your visit

Please make sure you bring all your tickets with you for admission and any pre-booked talks and shows. You can print them off or show them on your mobile device. 
If you have booked for talks and shows, we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the start of your first session, to allow time to check in and make your way through the venue. 
We hate to leave seats empty, so for free events, unbooked, or unused seats will be allocated to walk-up visitors on first-come, first-served basis, so do arrive on time if you have booked tickets.
