[Updated] Speakers, performers and (whisper it) tickets

We were already really excited about our line-up of speakers for TEDxExeter 2014 “Ideas Without Frontiers”, but it’s just got better!

First of all, you may remember Bandi Mbubi’s passionate call for fairtrade mobile phones at TEDxExeter 2012. The Congo Calling campaign was launched on the back of his talk, and Bandi will be returning this year to give an update on the real impacts the campaign has made.

Then we’re also happy to announce that we will be welcoming to the stage Exeter School’s Vocal Ensemble and slam poet Harry Baker. We are immensely looking forward to their performances. You can find biographies of all the speakers and performers on the website.

And those of you who were disappointed not to get a ticket the first time round may be even more excited to hear that we will shortly be releasing a few more via the Exeter Northcott Theatre box office. Sign up to our mailing list via the website now, ready for a mailshot later this week, and/or keep an eye out on Twitter for the latest information. You will need to move quickly, as the first release sold out in a week! UPDATE: Sold out again, this time within 50 minutes!
