How to buy tickets

Ticketing for BDF 2019 is super simple. Nearly every single event is ticketed, with tickets available to purchase on the Events page – this is the same across talks, workshops and screenings unless otherwise stated on the event. There is no festival pass – almost every event is free to attend. The exception to this is our main evening events, which are priced at £15/£25 student/adult and workshops ran by non-festival hosts where pricing varies.

Simply go and pick the events you want to attend and add the ticket(s) to the basket, try to avoid double booking yourself! If you do you can contact us and let us know which tickets you need to cancel and how many. Refunds are available up until 7 days before the festival.

We hope you agree that the pricing is pretty incredible. We want the festival to be as accessible as possible for people of all incomes. If you’ve booked a lot of free talks and have the ability to – please think about making a donation with your purchase (prompted at checkout). It will help keep the festival sustainable for years to come and ensure we can continue to offer the amazing price.
