If you would like to volunteer to hold a demo table at any Suffolk RED, please let us know, either by talking to one of the Steering Group at an event, or drop us an email: Contact Us there is six table spaces available at each Suffolk RED event. The demo must be where possible something people can participate in. If you would like to do a building project demo table, again do not hesitate to let one of us know.
If people would like to confirm they are attending and what it is you will be bringing we can add you to the list of ‘attractions’, this will help in generating interest to people wishing to attend.
please note that access to the site will not be permitted prior to the start time, this is to allow ample time for the demonstrators to set up etc.
