Instructions for joining

This year we will be hosting the evening online principally through Zoom. Clicking the buttons above will take you to the Zoom website where you should click the ‘Launch meeting button’. If you have the Zoom software already installed, please use that for the best experience.

Some of you may experience an issue where Zoom requires a meeting ID and password to ket you in – if that is you, then the information is as follows; Meeting ID: 768 1758 2988. Passcode: 3hH2xz

Otherwise, cancel the pop up (unless you want to instal the software) and look for the following: “Having issues with Zoom Client? Join from your browser” and click on that. This will use the internet browser already installed on your computer to join the meeting.

If it does not work in your browser, please try an alternative. We have found Chrome and Firefox to be the most reliable.

Once into the meeting, please make sure you mute your microphone (usually a microphone icon in the lower left corner) unless you are invited to speak. This will help ensure that everyone can hear whomever is speaking and that any background noise at your end does not interrupt and mute the person speaking. If you wish to say something, please find the ‘Raise your hand’ button and use this or enter your question/comment in the ‘Chat’. Someone will be monitoring these throughout the evening although may hold your question until a later point in the meeting.
