Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers.

We run many free events and our prices for other events are good value, but we want to make our events as accessible as possible. Pay What You Can tickets are available for this session. Please select from the four options the price you would like to pay for a ticket. Please note that only two Pay What You Can tickets can be purchased per transaction. If you would like additional tickets please book for the event again.

We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.

We sometimes film and photograph events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
