The new term is set to be a big one and both the University and the city as a whole have lots of great events coming up; from our very own Welcome Fair through to the award-winning Liverpool Music Week.
Welcome Fair – September
Whether you’re a new student or a third year, the Welcome Fair is not to be missed.
Taking place on Thursday, 21 September and Friday, 22 September (10am – 3pm), the Fair is your chance to find out about all of the societies and sports clubs you can join. You can also enjoy free pizza and pick up your Guild goody bag.
The Sport Welcome Fair is also taking place at the same time in the Sports and Fitness Centre.
Colm Tóibín – September
Our newly installed Chancellor, best-selling novelist Colm Tóibín, will be reading from his new work, House of Names at the Victoria Gallery and Museum. The event, which is taking place next Thursday, September 21 is part of our Liverpool Literary Festival Presents series. To book your tickets, please visit our Events webpage.
Science and Society: What have we learnt from Dolly the sheep? – October
Led by Professor Kevin Sinclair, Professor of Developmental Biology, University of Nottingham, this lecture will explore what we have learnt from Dolly the sheep.
If you haven’t heard of Dolly, she was a female sheep who was the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell. When Dolly was born, it proved specialised cells could be used to create a copy of the animal they came from.
The lecture is taking place on Tuesday, 17 October at the Victoria Gallery and Museum.
The Voodoo Ball at the Invisible Wind Factory – October
The Voodoo Ball is the Invisible Wind Factory’s Halloween celebration and is taking place on Saturday, 28 October. Very little information has been released about the ball. One thing we do know is that the music will be African and Latin-themed.
Liverpool Music Week – October/November
Liverpool Music Week was awarded the Best Metropolitan Festival Award by UK Festival Awards back in 2016, having attracted big name acts, such as John Carpenter, Warpaint and Dinosaur Jr. This year, the event is taking place between Friday, 27 October and Saturday, 4 November at venues across the city. A number of top acts have been confirmed, including Mount Kimbie, Perfume Genius and Princess Nokia.
It’s a Wonderful Life at the Liverpool Philharmonic – December
We know Christmas is months away (97 days to be precise!), but tickets for the Liverpool Philharmonic’s Christmas events always sell out fast. This year, the Philharmonic are showing It’s a Wonderful Life and offering breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea as part of your ticket price.
