2016 Manchester Conference Takes Shape

Max Gattie (Manchester Stammering Support Group) | 11.02.2016

At the Manchester Support Group, we’re very excited about our ideas for the 2016 BSA Conference. We’d like to hear your ideas too! We’ve put together a brief survey for you to complete:

The conference will be held from September 2–4, 2016 at Hulme Hall. This is in a leafy area of South Manchester, adjoining the university and the famous “curry mile” of Rusholme. A wide range of pubs, clubs and coffee shops are nearby, as are the free entry Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Museum. The city centre is a 20 minute walk, or you can catch one of the very frequent buses on Oxford Road, the busiest bus route in Europe.

The keynote speaker is former shadow chancellor, BSA patron and Chairman of Norwich City Football Club Ed Balls. We’d love to hear your ideas for other invited speakers, or for activities at the conference. We’ll be issuing a call for submissions for BSA members or other interested parties to run workshops or give talks shortly after tickets go on sale.

For now (and until September) please send comments and queries about the conference to:

You can also send messages to us via the BSA.
