Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we use Zoom?
It is popular, freely available and helps us to create a more ‘live in the moment’ togetherness that normally happens when we experience events in the ‘real’ world. See and speak with your friends, family, as the event starts.
So what is Zoom?
Zoom is software, an application/ program, that allows people to see and speak to each other over the internet. Zoom is a great way for us to get together and enjoy the wellbeing this creates while we socially distance ourselves to keep us all safe.
Do you need to join Zoom?
To join one of our events you do need to have a Zoom account and also to have downloaded the latest version of the software.
Zoom is free for you to use.
Many people already use Zoom to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues. To start using zoom just visit www.zoom.us
Is this easy?There are 2 steps.
1/ We want to make this process as easy as possible so when you purchase your ticket we send you a link that both helps you join Zoom and let’s you pre-register yourself for the event you bought your ticket for. Zoom then sends you a passcode to the email address you registered with.
2/ As the time and date of the event you registered for approaches you should, again, login during the quarter of an hour before the event starts – use the supplied meeting ID and Passcode with the email address you registered with. We open the ‘doors’ 15 minutes before the show starts so that you can get in through Zoom successfully before the performance starts.
What about my internet connection?
We use a high speed internet connection and broadcast our presentation in FHD. We unfortunately do not have control over the route this takes to you so as a rule of thumb, the bigger your screen, the greater the need for your broadband stability and the higher the speed. Put another way, if you have a slow or intermittent connection then you may have problems on the day if your broadband can’t keep up, it could, occasionally jump for example.
ls my ticket just for me?
Yes it is, but you can always buy another ticket for a friend.
What if I am a member of a flower club; for example?
We also offer group bookings for up to 40 tickets, up to 60 tickets, up to 90 tickets, and beyond, simply enquire to firstname.lastname@example.org
Are there any rules
