After reviewing the ongoing situation in relation to COVID-19 our priority continues to be the health and safety of our exhibitors and visitors.  It is highly likely that social distancing measures will remain in place for some time and travelling to the events could be high risk for some people; it will also be challenging to maintain the required distance at a busy event.  We have therefore taken the difficult decision to postpone all Sight Village events until 2021.

We do have plans to host a small event at Queen Alexandra College in October this year with a restricted number of exhibitors and visitors to enable us to ensure social distancing and other safety measures can be adhered to at all times.

All 2021 dates are now confirmed:

South West 21st April - Sandy Park Stadium, Exeter
Central 8th & 9th June - Cranmore Park Conference & Events Centre, West Midlands
North East 23rd September - Royal Armouries, Leeds
Wales 12th October - All Nations Centre, Cardiff
South East 2nd & 3rd November - Kensington Town Hall, London

The first edition of Sight Village Newsletter has been produced and distributed.  If you would like a copy or have a news story to include in our next edition, please get in touch - we will be delighted to hear from you!

If you would like more information about the October event, the newsletter or the 2021 events please email us at and we will be happy to keep in touch with you.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2021!

What the students say

QAC has helped me to be more confident, independent and make my own choices and decisions. I have also gained valuable work experience!
