What’s in the programme?
Our full programme is available here.


How do the one-to-ones work?
Your two one-to-one sessions are included in the price of your weekend ticket and the time of your sessions will be confirmed on your official Mslexicon ticket.

Whilst we will try our best to ensure that your one-to-one sessions will not conflict with any of your pre-booked events, we cannot guarantee this. However, all our one-to-one sessions run concurrently with our weekend programme so it’s perfectly acceptable to pop in and out of a workshop or talk, which all our speakers and workshop leaders are aware of, so there’s no need to worry.

The time of your one-to-one sessions are strictly enforced so please ensure you arrive in plenty of time.

If you arrive late then you will not be allowed to over-run.


Can I bring my dog?

With the exception of guide dogs, pets are not permitted anywhere at Mslexicon.


Terms and conditions
