MiniBash 2017 UK

Bringing the PebblePad UK community together to share ideas, see great examples of practice, and eat cake.


About MiniBash UK

As ever, MiniBash UK is set to be jam-packed with 'not to be missed goodness' and designed to be big on value - no matter whether you are forced to arrive a little late or leave a little early (though, don't forget, our drinks reception is one very good reason to stay till the close of play). MiniBash UK is always very popular as it's a chance for our community to catch up and share ideas over coffee and cake. So we do recommend that you're quick off the mark in signing up - doing so will also mean you can take advantage of our early bird pricing.

Early bird price: £65.00 (until 19th May 2017)
Standard price: £95.00
