Tickets are now available for the Bath Digital Festival, running Monday 27 October to Wednesday 5 November 2014.

This 10-day collection of digital and technology events, based in various locations around the city of Bath, aims to educate and inspire all who attend.

There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a designer, developer, marketing manager or social media bod. You might not even work in the sector, but are interested in keeping up-to-date with the latest trends and technology.

There’s even the Digital Skills Day for young people looking to start their career in digital.
