The BBC Academy have just announced the dates that tickets will be available for this year’s Fast Train - taking place on May 16th.
Tickets will be released via EventBrite on three different dates in order to best accommodate people’s varying availability to go online to book, and to give everyone the best chance of getting a place at the industry’s hottest freelancer training event.
Tickets will be released as follows:
10am Wed 25th April
9pm Wed 2nd May
11am Sat 5th May
Sarah Wood, executive producer of Fast Train, said, ‘Last year’s Fast Train was so successful that all our tickets were gone within an hour of them being available on the EventBrite site –this left a lot of very disappointed freelancers who missed the very small window of opportunity to secure a place. This year I want to make sure everyone has the chance to join us at the UK’s largest free freelancer training day and festival so we are going to release tickets during the day, at night and even at the weekend.’
A host of top industry names have already been confirmed for this year’s event, where attendees will once again get the chance to sample a wide range of training and masterclasses with industry leaders.
They include Danny Cohen, BBC1 controller; Zai Bennett, BBC3 controller; Karl Warner, executive editor BBC Entertainment; Google’s Peter Barron; Andrew Jackson, commissioning editor, Channel 4; Ruth Wrigley, All3Media and Colette Foster, from Endemol’s Remarkable Television.
TV Fast Train will again be produced in partnership with Creative Skillset and in association with a range of industry partners, including The Indie Training Fund, DV Talent, VET, shortcourses@nfts, BECTU, Skills2Film, The TV Collective, Pact and ThinkBigger.
