HODx returns to the regions!

FREE bite-size inspiration and planning days for organisers.

The HODs team will be touring the regions again this spring with our taster days -  yes, HODx is BACK! These fun, FREE days will be packed with inspiration and tips to help you plan more sparkling events for the festival.


IMPORTANT UPDATE: In light of the latest government guidance about Coronavirus, these events have now been cancelled – we’re working on alternative ways to connect and will update as soon as possible. 

What's happening?

These are fun, social days, packed with information, tips and techniques, so come ready to share and learn!  Whether you're new to the festival or an old hand, there will be something for everyone with our lightning talk sessions. Your HODs team will take you through registration, media, marketing, and social media, with a focus on how to give events some added sparkle by engaging in our national theme. And, most importantly, your fellow organisers will be there to share their experiences.
