Sold out

Tickets for TEDxExeter 2016 went on sale at 10am on 1 December, and massive demand meant that tickets to TEDxExeter 2016 sold out faster than ever before. Tickets for the live event at the Exeter Northcott Theatre sold out in 22 minutes – shades of Glastonbury – and tickets for the simultaneous livestream to the nearby Alumni Auditorium all went before the end of the day.

This year’s unprecedented rush did cause some problems with the online booking system. Our apologies to those who had a frustrating time as a result, and our thanks to the staff at the Exeter Northcott Theatre for all their hard work getting the bookings through.

We’re sorry if you were disappointed not to get a ticket. But the Northcott does have a waiting list and as in 2015 we will make the livestream publicly available. It is a great opportunity to get a group of friends or colleagues together and start your own conversations in the breaks. Anyone who wants to run a viewing party can contact us for more information.

A proportion of the tickets for the livestream to the Alumni Auditorium have been reserved for school groups and there are still a small number available. Schools who want to bring students along should contact Jackie Bagnall, co-ordinator of educational experiences, at for more information and a booking form.
