QED Ticket draw

Posted on: October 14, 2011

Since late September I’ve been raising funds to get as many skeptics on low-incomes to QEDcon (held in manchester next March 10th & 11th). The QED tickets are really well priced, especially compared to numerous other skeptical and science conferences out there. Yet, there are still those who are unable to afford to attend.

Donations have flooded in and we’ve already raised funds for a number of tickets! Originally I set the draw date of November 30th, but I think that’s too far away. As I’m only funding the ticket for those who win, it would only give people four months to put aside their travel and accommodation costs.

With this in mind I am moving the QED ticket draw date to October 31st – Halloween. Be sure to apply now if you want to be considered for a free ticket.

However, because I’m impatient and want to spread sweet skeptical love I will be drawing ONE ticket TODAY at 5pm. By home time today SOMEONE could be the owner of a QED ticket! (The process will be filmed to prove I’m not cheating or anything, and uploaded to my twitter account: @hayleystevens at 5pm)

The October 31st draw means that we need a final push on donations – all of the Glow-in-the-dark Placebo bands kindly donated by SkepticBros have now gone to generous donors, but you can still donate by clicking here. Just £2/$3 can help! 

Thank you to those who have donated so far, you’re making a difference for a fellow skeptic that you don’t even know – how awesome does that make you?!

Tips for getting to QED on a budget:
Stay in the Hatters Hostel on Newton Street – I stayed there for the February Conference. It’s a 5 minute walk from the venue and is clean, affordable and friendly (they also give you free tea and toast AND there’s a Tesco Express between the hostel and venue.)
Check out cheap train tickets here or consider ‘splitting’ your train journey to save money
Use the National Express ‘Fun Fare’ calculator to work out the cheapest fare available, or discover cheap coach journeys with Megabus here
Attend the QED Rebel Dinner – affordable food with a large group of fellow skeptics!
