Concessionary Tickets for low-earners
To reflect our founding in 1983, we're offering Concessionary Tickets at the price of £83 (+VAT).

You will be asked for details of your role and income, and to confirm you agree with these terms when you purchase. Buy tickets now.

Bursary Scheme - CLOSED
We are offering a limited number of Bursaries, for those who would be otherwise unable to attend by their own means. These may include students, volunteers, and other grassroots audio people not currently in employment or earning. Bursaries include a free ticket, a year's free Affiliate Membership of The Radio Academy, and a contribution towards travel. Applications are now closed for this scheme.
