The Big Event is the largest annual voluntary sector conference in East Sussex. SpeakUp Forum has been organising the Big Event for the last eight years.

The Big Event is an opportunity for the Voluntary and Community Sector to come together and explore relevant developments and changes that affect us as a sector.

The Big Event always includes an advice fair, conference presentations, and breakaway workshops or masterclasses.
