Last Chance to book!!! ‘Liverpool Beyond The Brink’, Dinner with Professor Michael Parkinson CBE – Friday, 12th October 2018

We’re delighted to welcome Professor Michael Parkinson to the talk before Dinner next Friday, 12th October. Professor Michael Parkinson will be discussing the book he is currently writing to update his 1980s classic – ‘Liverpool on the Brink’. His new book describes the extraordinary if incomplete renaissance of Liverpool during the last 30 years. It shows how much has been achieved, who helped and what are its outstanding challenges in future. Full details can be found here


This Wednesday at the Club!

The Athenaeum looks to be bustling on Wednesday, 10 October, with two interest groups taking place during the course of the day. At 2:00pm the Film Group meet in the Wine Servery and at 5:30pm the Music Group meet in the Library for a concert by The Camira Wind Trio


Important: Church Alley Access From Church Street

From Sunday 14 October to the evening of Friday 19 October there will be no access to Church Alley from Church Street due to work taking place on the sewer mains. Access to the Athenaeum from School Lane will remain unaffected.


For Your Information

On Wednesday 12 December the Dining Room will be closed for a private function. The Newsroom and Library services will remain unaffected on this day. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
