LDC Development Programme

The LDC Development programme for 2017-18 is now completed.

For future reference: booking for all events will normally be open at least a month in advance of the event date. Please follow the link on the workshop title to register through Eventbrite. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and there is a waiting list when events are full.
