Your Safety is Our Priority
It is with regret that we have had to make the difficult decision of switching the format of this year’s MK SEND Information Festival back to being fully online instead of the hybrid schedule announced earlier.
The two-day Festival which was originally planned around online workshops on Day 1 and in-person activities taking place on Day 2 (at The Ridgeway Centre) will now switch to being fully online on both days.
The dates however have not changed, and the event will still go ahead on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th February 2022.
This was necessary due to the ongoing uncertainty about the spread of COVID-19 especially the new variant and the number of people testing positive and having to isolate on short notices.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
