BBC Academy’s TV Fast Train Event

April 4, 2012 @ 9:56 pm Posted in News Comments

Tickets for this year’s TV Fast Train are being made available on three separate occasions, so that everyone has the chance to get a place at the UK’s largest free freelancer training day.

The tickets will be released via EventBrite at different times and dates in the run up to the event on 16 May to accommodate people’s varying availability to go online and book.

The dates are:

10am Wednesday 25 April

9pm Wednesday 2 May

11am Saturday 5 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.
