How do I access the events?
We are using Crowdcast to bring you our online programme of events and to process our ticket sales this year.
When you click on 'Book Now' on the event page on the website, you will be directed to the Crowdcast page for the virtual event. Then you will go through these steps:
1. Input the amount that you wish to pay (between €5 and €10). Then press 'Book Now'.
2. If you have never used Crowdcast to access online events previously, it will need to verify your email address before proceeding to make the booking. Enter your email address into the popup box and click on 'Email me a login link'.
3. Go to your email account and click on the link in the email that you have received from Crowdcast.
4. You will then be asked to make payment by providing your card details to complete your booking.
5. You will receive an email with confirmation of your booking and a link to access the event on the day. There will be reminder emails before the event also.
To access the viewing screen from either the booking email or the reminder email, click on 'View Event' (orange button), then on the next screen, click on 'Return to event' (green button on right hand side). Then press the Play button onscreen to start to view your event.
If the orange button with the link does not work, there is a URL at the bottom of the mail that you can copy and paste into your browser.
6. You will receive a separate email from Stripe, our payment processor, as a receipt for your payment.
If you have used Crowdcast previously, it will recognise you and you will skip stages 1, 2 and 3 and it will take you directly to the payment stage when you first press 'Book Now'.
We recommend a minimum of 5Mbps download and 2Mbps upload speed for a stable and consistent stream of video and audio. Crowdcast will automatically drop down to audio-only mode if your internet connection is weak.
