UKHC23 Schedule

This is the current schedule for the UK Hypnosis Convention 2023. You can click on each speaker for more detailed information about them and their presentation. All speakers and timings are subject to change.

As with all convention events, there are restrictions on the number of people who can attend based on the theatre/room safe maximum occupancy set by the venue. All seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

All presentations, workshops and other convention events such as the Gala Dinner are held at our venue. We will have an obvious welcome, registration and information area with some vendor tables. This is close to our presentation and workshop rooms.

Tickets for the Convention Days and Workshops must be purchased separately and in advance via this website. We do not issue physical or e-tickets but you will be given a lanyard pass on your arrival which must be worn at all times to gain entry to the convention rooms.
