TEDxWarrington COVID-19 Update

Due to the current health and economic crisis, TEDxWarrington has been postponed. We have secured a licence extension and are working on plans to reschedule the event in autumn 2020 or spring 2021.

The speaker application process has been frozen and all applications received are being held securely on file. We will not be accepting new speaker applications for the new date.

The TEDxWarrington organising team is bitterly disappointed but this pales into insignificance when we consider the state our world is in right now.

We wish everyone well and we’ll be back in touch when it’s safe and right to resume event planning once more.

Stay safe.
