FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is plenty of parking available for anyone attending (one of the bonuses to keeping the event small means that we don't need many parking spaces), the venue is also close to several bus routes.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

I'm hoping that I've already covered everything here so that you shouldn't have to, but you can contact me through the Facebook page - Richard Hitchin Photography or by email at richard@richardhitchin.co.uk

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, once you have purchased your ticket I can see that it has been purchased.

Can I update my registration information?

Sure, just get in touch either through the Facebook page or by email - details above.
