Review 2016 and discuss what's next for 2017. From constitutional battles and economic uncertainty at home to political turbulence across Europe and a new president heading into the White House, the winds of change will continue to blow in the year ahead, but in what direction are they blowing? Are you apprehensive, in despair or exhilarated at the prospect of another year of change? Or have you simply given up making predictions? Whatever your hopes, fears, excitement or uncertainties the Liverpool Salon invites you to join a conversation on the tumulteous year that's gone and the future that awaits.
Join Kevin Bean (Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool) and Matthew Alan Hill (Liverpool John Moore's Unversity and author of American Politics for Dummies) who will start the evening off with their take on 2016. And there'll be a glass or two of wine and a roaring fire to keep the conversation flowing. All welcome.
