  2. I’ve ‘attended’ with pleasure the May 13th seminar, to which I signed up earlier this month, but I can’t work out how to sign up for the June 3rd seminar listed here. Using the ‘booking is essential’ link I merely get to a page saying the seminar has finished, ie the May 13th one.

    With best wishes – Liz
