You must register at least two days in advance for your desired time slot. Each time slot runs for 15 minutes, and there are only three time slots per hour to allow staff time to clean the venue every hour. You may arrive at any point during your 15-minute time slot, and you must check in before the end of your time slot. If you arrive late, you may be asked to return on a later date. You will be given your Reader Card when you check in and must fill it out before commencing to the stage inside the Student Union.
