I went last year, it was good. I'm going this year... Not sure which day.
Lots of talks included in the ticket price of about £10.
There are 90 Min work shops you can pay extra for.
There are lots of tour operators there organising trips all over the place. Also some stalls selling I remember a few selling books

I believe Rannulph Fiennes is there. Very good speaker and rather funny. Saw him in Cambridge a few weeks back. If you get a chance go see him.

Cheers

Loved his book (N got a signed copy when she worked for the publisher), not sure I can believe he's funny  :P

I went a couple of years ago.  I’m tempted to go again this year.
