Social Programme

Being in person allows a social programme.

Wednesday evening features a ‘Shiverpool’ tour to learn of some of the haunted medical history of Liverpool, followed by a networking reception on the 13th floor of the newly built Royal College of Physicians Spine Building.

Thursday morning is the first ever BNOS fun run (either 5km or 10km by the docks). Participants are encouraged to wear a wig or decorate their hair/head to help to raise awareness for brain tumour patients.

Thursday evening is the conference dinner, with a ceilidh, at Isla Gladstone, a beautiful Victorian glass house set in its own private grounds.

All of these activities should improve your networking experience and also your mindfulness!

These activities are optional and places may be limited so please book at the time of your conference registration. Charges apply.
