Upcoming events

Our wonderful brains

Date: 16 March 2024
Time: 9:30am - 4:30pm
Location: Liverpool Central Library, William Brown Street, Liverpool, L3 8EW

Your brain is the most complex thing in the universe. It’s what makes you ... you. Billions of cells working together to control your emotions, memories, movement and speech.  

Come along to find out more about the brain and what makes it so fascinating. Diseases which affect the brain can be difficult to study and understand. Join Alzheimer’s Research UK and local researchers based across the North West who are studying the brain and what happens in diseases like Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. 

We will be in Liverpool Central Library, with fun activities for families. Come along to have a go at our range of free activities for all ages, from craft activities like making a brain hat, to a virtual reality experience that puts you in the shoes of someone with dementia, and games exploring brain changes in dementia. Plus much more!

We are also available to answer any questions about dementia and taking part in research, with information available for you to take home. 

There is no need to register for this event, just turn up and find us the atrium of the library, near the main entrance.  

Please email Josie and Katy at engage@alzheimersresearchuk.org if you have any questions.
