The Accompanying Persons Programme will take place on 3 – 6 August 2022, taking in the cultural and social ambience of the great city of Liverpool, including, of course, the Classic Beatles tour.


The academic programme for all components of the meeting will be based in the University of Liverpool’s well-equipped and award-winning Central Teaching Hub.
