Thank you HE 2023!

A very successful return for Hidden Earth!

We weren't sure how things would go having not had a hidden earth since 2019 but it was even better than we hoped for! Over 420 weekend ticket sales plus more on the door (final totals are being worked out) - that's more than 2019 and in fact, more than most previous events. Over 50 lectures and workshops which all more or less ran to time. A very popular conference dinner too with 136 delegates.

So many people worked their socks off to make this happen so a massive thank you to everyone - lecturers, traders, clubs, sponsors, tech, admin, catering and of course the delegates. 🥰

The team has learnt a lot and will continue to improve the event. We're excited for next year!

I notice you don't mention the Traders !!

I am sure it wasn't intentional and I'd hate to see anyone nitpicking faults and omissions in what was clearly meant to be a very positive post. I think it can be reasonably assumed that Hidden Earth is extremely thankful to the traders... yourself included... who made the main hall such a great place and who offered a great variety of items from books, art and caving equipment.

Yeah well done everyone. I know it's a lt of work from a lot of people. It was great, like it always is, and all the more so after a few years without it, just to remind us that we do need such an event in our vicarious-potholing lives.
