BAFTA Television: The Sessions, supported by TCL, will take place online until Thursday 30 July and activity is open to industry and public guests, with tickets available now at events.bafta.org. In previous years, The Sessions took place as a single day of in-person events and talks. This year, BAFTA is adapting the format to take place digitally, in-line with Government restrictions. BAFTA is using this new format as an opportunity to programme more events as part of The Sessions than ever-before, over a longer period of time. The series of events and social content is scheduled to take place throughout July in the lead-up to the British Academy Television Craft Awards on Friday 17 July and to the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards on Friday 31 July.
