General Info

This is the first Signature Event to take place in the UK!

We hope that you will enjoy a thrilling competition here in Hertfordshire. This event is made possible because several schools have joined together in order to create a 'super event' in a high quality venue. Note that the University of Hertfordshire are not an event sponsor so the venue has been hired on behalf of the organising schools.

 

We hope that you will be wiling to share in the friendly competitive atmosphere and that your team is willing to learn from other teams and share your own amazing journey so that others can learn from you.

 

If you have any questions about the event, then please do get in touch. Note that the start/finish time is slightly earlier than normal VEX events, this is because the venue has imposed rather strict time restrictions on us so we will need to make a prompt start.

 

We looking forward to welcoming you and to working with you on the day.
