Sea Fever 4

Sea Fever Literary Festival 2020
TIME AND TIDE
9 – 23 October 2020

Two weeks, ten events, all online – and all free.
Sponsored by Hayes + Storr Solicitors

In these strange times, this year’s Sea Fever Literary Festival has gone virtual, with ten events between 9 and 23 October offered to you by the power of Zoom.

All you need to do to enjoy the array of fascinating talks and discussions over the two weeks of the festival is to log in with your own laptop, PC or mobile device.

Six of the ten events are broadcast live from the heart of Wells Maltings, with the chance for you to interact with the discussions; four are pre-recorded events, and broadcast direct to you.

All the events are offered free of charge, but we invite donations via our Just Giving page. Please give what you can – your donations help to keep us alive during these extraordinary times – CLICK HERE

 

Most of us are now familiar with Zoom, but it’s worth brushing up on how to use this simple online technology if you aren’t. Follow the link HERE

Here’s how to join each event:

  1. The ten events are listed below. Each has a link to follow, with the meeting ID and password.
  2. The Zoom space will open for you to join the event 30 minutes beforehand. When you are ready, click the link for the event, and await instructions on your screen.
  3. As the event starts, you will automatically be connected. The host will tell you what you need to know at the start, and run through any ground rules. Generally, we will ask you to mute your microphones, to avoid any background noise.
  4. Make yourself comfortable, and enjoy the event. If it’s a live event, questions from the audience may be invited – the host will tell you what to do.

We shall also be recording each event, and posting to our YouTube channel a few days afterwards.

Do enjoy this year’s online Sea Fever. If you have any queries, please drop us a line on hello@wellsmaltings.org.uk.
