Continuing Education Open Day


The Open Day takes place at 126 Mount Pleasant, home of the Department of Continuing Education

The University of Liverpool’s Department of Continuing Education is running an Open Day, with talks and taster sessions ranging from philosophy to Egyptian art to wine.

The event, on Saturday September 7, is open to the public and runs from 11am to 3pm at 126 Mount Pleasant.

Talks include an examination of Liverpool’s involvement in the slave trade with Alex Robinson, a philosophical appraisal of the financial crisis by Dr Paul Smith and Joanne Backhouse on Egyptian art, while Brian Wheaton discusses the history of wine.

As well as talks, Alice Bennett will host a creative writing workshop, Paul Gatenby offers a sketching session and Grace Allwood will introduce the keyboard to those with a musical interest. Spanish and Mandarin language taster sessions are also available.

Chinese calligraphy workshops run throughout the day and Stephen Hughes, who is teaching Introduction to Classical Mechanics in January, will deliver a presentation on the world around us, from a physics perspective. James Bainbridge will also lead a group reading of a popular novel.
