Institute of Advanced Studies Events FAQ

Photography and audio recording

Please note that there may be photography and/or audio recording at some events. By attending you consent to your image being used for future communications both on and off line by the Institute of Advanced Studies to promote our work. Please inform a member of staff before the event starts, if you do not wish to be audio recorded/photographed.


As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats and we do our best to get the numbers right. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
