Due to limited availability, pre-registration for the BCLA UK event(s) is mandatory. You can add a workshop to your booking at anytime, subject to availability. Workshops are FREE but you will need to make an online reservation at the time of booking the event and you must have booked an appropriate package for the day of your workshop in order to attend. The programme at the Birmingham and London venues will be the same, so you only need to book for ONE event based on your location. Please find instructions on how to register, below.
The Optical Assistant Course will run alongside the BCLA UK event as a separate track. To register for the Optical Assistant Course, click HERE

Please be advised that if you book a workshop session, the program item will not appear on your order confirmation. This is because there is no cost associated to workshop sessions. If you wish to double check that you have been successfully booked on to a workshop session, just revisit the BCLA UK registration page and look for the yellow "in itinerary" button next to your chosen program item. You have the ability to remove a workshop item from your booking at any time, if you no longer wish to attend.
