There are three different ticket options* and are first come first serve. Tickets prices include VAT. Tickets do not include Lunch**
* Why are there three different ticket prices? Being an inclusive network is one of the core Losing Control principles and what that means is we are committed to include people from different backgrounds, sectors, and experiences as well as to make sure that ticket costs do not exclude Losing Control network members from participating. With that being said, the ticket sales for this event are just enough to cover the cost of running the Teach Me session. There are three different options so that those who are paid well to do their work or can afford pay it forward or standard ticket will be supporting other people to come along on a discounted ticket and travel bursary
**Lunch: In the spirit of Losing Control and sharing resources, we will be having a big family-style potluck! If you can bring along a dish to share that would be much appreciated.
