Our inaugural TEDxSherborne has now taken place.

It was an incredible day full of energy, authenticity, realism and optimism in equal measure. Thank you to the many, many people who made the event what it was – the speakers, the performers, the production crew and the stewards – not forgetting, of course, our live audience both in the auditorium as well as the 5,000 or so people who joined us online from around Sherborne and the UK, as well in the US, Australia, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Uganda.

Someone described it as ‘like giving Sherborne a defibrillator shock!’ We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. If we’re honest, that was always our intention – a good, well meaning, respectful shock of course, but a shock nonetheless!

In a few weeks’ time, we will have our final videos to share. In the meantime, whilst we wait for them to be edited, here are some of the best bits…
