Bidwriting workshop - register your interest

Would you want to attend a bidwriting workshop? 

I've been asked if it might be possible to run an open access version of my long standing session, and split the costs between the attendees, making it much cheaper than if offered as a bookable session (probably £50-60 each if we get 10-12 people). …

And then lo, the very next day, we arrive for rehearsals on the beach and there is a small group of people with a man operating a drone!

Whilst the artists chatted to the operator, I spoke with the small group who turned out to be from Gwynedd Council tourism and marketing team. They…
