Playing host to the UK’s most fabulous women in STEM, ALD Live! is an entertaining evening of geekery suitable for everyone over the age of 12.

FAQs

Can I bring my children?

Ada Lovelace Day Live! is suitable for children aged 12 or over.

I'm not a woman. Can I come?

Absolutely! All our speakers on stage are women, but the audience is mixed. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Will you finish spot on 9.30pm?

Probably not, no. We try our hardest, but sometimes performers get swept up in the moment and overrun.

How do I get to The Ri?

The Ri has comprehensive travel information on its website.

Is the venue accessible?

Yes, and The Ri has information about accessibility on its website. Assistance dogs are welcome, and the venue will provide water. If you have particular accessibility questions that are not answered here, please email us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Oh, no! I bought a ticket and now I can't come!

If you find that you can't come to ALD Live! and would like a refund, please request one through Eventbrite before 3 October. We will only be able to issue a refund after 3 October if there is a waiting list.

If would like your ticket price to become a donation instead, please email us at admin@findingada.com so that we can release your ticket to someone else. And thank you very much for the donation - we are run on a shoestring and every little helps!
