In addition to the four workshops, the Festival programme includes a mix of pre-recorded keynote presentations, podcasts and live discussion session – and a bumper fringe programme comprising more than 20 presentations covering a wide range of road safety and related topics.

In total the Festival programme comprises more than 40 presentations and sessions, which will be released or staged live at 10.00 and 14.00 on every working day from 2-27 November inclusive.

The four live discussion sessions – covering cycling, the school run, autonomous vehicles and e-scooters – are limited to a maximum of 100 participants, and are almost fully subscribed. These sessions are being held on Tuesday afternoons at 2.00pm, and the registration form for each can be found on the programme page on the Festival website.

Anyone wishing to deliver a video presentation as part of the Festival fringe, or wanting more information, should contact either Edward Seaman or Nick Rawlings by email or on 01379 650112.
