Following the festival, you'll meet for an evening's feedback session in the Guardian offices on Thursday 7 May (7.30pm-9.30pm) to go over your best work and discuss what worked and why, and future steps for anyone considering taking their photography further.
This practical on-site workshop is ideal for anybody interested in taking photographs at live events, whether as an enthusiastic amateur or someone considering photography as a career. You'll have your own DSLR camera, preferably with wide-angled and zoom lenses, and be comfortable using it.
The course price includes VAT, your festival ticket, a photographer's pass with VIP access, course handouts and detailed feedback. There will be a designated area for attendees which will be looked after by a facilitator.
