Feeling unsure???

If you are feeling a bit nervous about arriving we can set you up with a friendly brightbox buddy who you can meet or chat to before the event. You can either arrive together or know you see familiar face when you get there.

If you haven’t been before and you’re just wanting to see if its right for you rather than committing to the full 6-weeks, that’s fine too! Just sign-up then let us know.
