This year the Little BIG Awards will host regional finals in 11 locations across the UK, with an additional Virtual final for those who are unable to attend in person.
Attending the live events is a fantastic experience and so we highly recommend attending in person, however we understand that some schools may find it logistically difficult to attend this way. The Virtual final will make use of Cisco WebEx technology to connect schools over the web to a panel of judges. We will provide guidance and support nearer the time on how to make use of this technology should you wish to attend virtually.
Here are all the details of the finals, including locations and dates (the times will be announced nearer the events):

Should your school wish to select a different regional final, they can click the "CHANGE" link in the Regional section on the homepage and select an alternative. If you cannot attend in person then pick the Virtual final.
We look forward to seeing you at one of the finals!
