Although all events are free, booking is essential as places are restricted. Please contact me for further information.

The King’s Dock Model will be on display in the RENEW Rooms from 19 June – 14 July. On Wednesday 21 June there will be a chance to listen to Chris Wilkinson of WilkinsonEyre, the principal architect for the Liverpool
Arena, and Bob Prattey, Chief Executive of the King’s Dock. This event begins at 5.45pm, with a drinks reception after the discussion. See below for booking information.

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris are offering a unique opportunity to take a tour of the Le Corbusier inspired Unity Building on Chapel St before its grand opening later this year. The tour takes place from 5pm on Monday 19
June and again is a free event. However, due to restrictions places are limited so advance booking is necessary-see below.

Following last year’s hugely successful RSA/RIBA lecture, we are delighted to present another on Thursday 22 June with Dr Franco Bianchini from the International Cultural Planning and Policy Unit at De Montfort University.
Dr Bianchini will be examining the impacts of economic globalisation on contemporary cities. Please e-mail [Link] to book a place for this event. This event is free.
