#Flamingle19 tickets selling fast!


The third Cambridgeshire Festival of Education (also known as @CambsEdFest and #Flamingle19) is just 9 weeks away!  If you’re intending to come to this flamboyant celebration of teachers and teaching but haven’t yet got your ticket then you might want to get a wriggle on! Tickets (at only £35 including lunch) have been selling fast since we featured in TES the other day.  There’s a stellar line up of speakers but the true stars of the show are the brilliant educators who bring the Magic!
