100 tickets.
S2 - S4 pupils.

The ticketed event was open to 100 pupils in S2 - S4 and was geared towards those with an interest within the creative arts. Pupils were required to complete a survey prior to the even to obtain a ticket. By collecting this information we were able to tailor the workshops and brief the speakers with information that would maximise the impact for this specific group.
