MRS is returning to The Lowry in Salford for another round-up of some of the sessions that inspired delegates at Impact 2018 in March, including award-winning and –nominated presentations from our Annual Conference Awards.

The afternoon event features three presentations and a workshop for just £55 plus VAT for members (£75 plus VAT for non-members) and includes a private view and drinks reception in the Lowry Galleries. Last year was a sell out, so book early to avoid disappointment.


The Lowry Arts Centre
Pier 8,Salford Quays,M50 3AZ
