Storytelling is the big theme of the day, beginning with a masterclass from Will Storr (Selfie, The Science of Storytelling) and attendees will get original, memorable, insights from top chefs, war veterans, world-record breakers, biographers, (former) sex-workers, historians, comedians, fashion experts and best-selling writers and adapters of world-famous fiction and nion-fiction.
 
Featured contributors: Stewart Lee (Content Provider, March of the Lemmings), Dean Stott (Relentless), Dr Shahidha Bari (Dressed, The Secret Life of Clothes), Cash Carraway (Skint Estate), Bosh Brothers (How to Live Vegan), hosted by Hannah Griffiths (All3Media), Viv Groskop (The Anna Kerenina Fix, How to Own The Room), and Richard Kilgarriff (Bookomi).
