Festival programme

The programme for the Festival of Road Safety comprises an exciting mix of pre-recorded keynote presentations, live discussions sessions and workshops, podcasts - and a bumper fringe programme.

Festival content will be published at 10.00 and 14.00 on every working day throughout November (2-27 inc). All of the content will be aired free to view by all. However, if you want to participate in the live discussion sessions and workshops you will need to register in advance - you can do so by clicking on the links on each live session/workshop.

All of the sessions can be viewed below (once they are published), or alternatively on the Road Safety GB YouTube channel. All the sessions will also be recorded so you will be able to view them retrospectively at your convenience if you prefer.

For more information or assistance please contact Edward Seaman by email or on 01379 650112.
