RIBA North West organises a number of events unique to the region.
'A Grand Day Out': Blackpool school children spent a day learning more about the town with members of the North Lancashire Society of Architects.
While we have a number of events aimed at our members and the architectural community, such as our CPD programme, we also run events for the wider public. We often organise these with our local branches or with external partners who share our enthusiasm for architecture!
These events take place across the region and aim to promote and champion architecture and the built environment, as well as engage people with architecture. These events often take the form of exhibitions, talks, walking tours and festivals.
