Please note: Increasingly,  TVN events are becoming fully booked well before the actual date.  Nevertheless, we are disappointed to find that something like 20% of those who have booked places, fail to join on the day.  If you find that you are unable to join an event for which you have booked, please inform the organiser as soon as possible so that your place can be offered to someone else.
