I find the workshop takes waay too long sometimes if you include too much. How many people are going to the event?

I've done some workshops about Tails, and trying to help people understand the installation process took a while, let alone its usage. I can't imagine covering a general intro lecture to FLOSS, letting people test software, and then attempting to root/rom-flash specific models of phones (which includes having to find specific drivers and firmware) and install lineage within a span of time that wouldn't have people itching to finally leave before it's over. I might have one whole session on Lineage, and one session on the FLOSS stuff. But maybe you know some fast tricks about rooting/rom-flashing phones that I don't, and can pack everything into about 2 hours.

Otherwise, informational handouts are really usefull and allows people to have a reference and reminder of the details. Coffee and snacks are great. Have a 10 minute intermission. You can even play a short video to intro the talk. Having a big screen showing a live session is usefull and allows you to demonstrate what you speak of.
