Every year Caption features a mixture of workshops, panels, talks and other event and this year is no different! See below for full details barring accidents and emergencies… There will be additional pop up activities taking place in the dealers room and bar!

To give visitors choices, there are some events taking place simulataneously, so if you do want to go to a workshop, guests on panels will be around to chat to afterwards and all panels are being recorded for future podcast… Panels generally run for an hour, including 20 mins of questions from the audience and workshops for 90mins to 2 hours.
