Thanks, Rob — that sounds great.
For the benefit of any other BCS non-members trying to register for a
free ticket: their website does not work. They want you to register
for a website account, and the details they ask for include your
postal address (for no good reason that I can see). Rather than let
you type your address directly, they force you through a
postcode-based address finder — but it generates (well-formed)
addresses which their own client-side validation system rejects as
registering. Once you've got the "you're now registered" email, you
can turn it back on again, log in, and go through the ridiculously
complex ticket-booking process.
