How do I register for an Open Day?

Do I need to book a place?

Yes, we have a limited number of spaces available for each Open Day and so you really need to pre-register. You can reserve extra tickets if you would like to bring a relative or friend.

For health and safety reasons, we are not able to accommodate anyone who has not pre-registered.

Do I need to bring written confirmation of my booking with me?

While having a printed booking confirmation is not required upon check-in, however, having a paper ticket will help speed up the registration process.
