All scheduled speakers, exhibitors and sponsors have been incredibly understanding of the situation. Thanks to everyone who has already bought tickets for the event. We will be arranging ticket refunds as soon as we can and promise you will be the first to know the revised date #SEND #disability #education #learning ...

Former National Star student Abbie Smart, is launching her new book ‘Get over yourself, we’re only disabled’ at this year’s FestABLE.
