Last I've heard, as it's sponsored by APB, it is open to APB members only.
Still, a very good programme.

Yes, it seems do be designed exclusively for APB members. Please let us know if there is a chance for a visit also for non-members.

I have emailed some people I know but haven't heard back yet. It would be a shame if some were excluded.
