The Child Brain Injury Trust is bringing an exciting and brand new event to Manchester! This is your opportunity to secure a place at our Art Exhibition and Networking event which will be followed by a hotly anticipated Legal Conference.

Art Exhibition & Networking Evening

Tuesday 12th March 2019, 6pm – late

The Castlefield Rooms, 18-20 Castle Street, Manchester, M3 4LZ

Each year, the Child Brain Injury Trust celebrates the artistic talents of the children we support by asking them to create a masterpiece for our Art Exhibition. We are delighted to be hosting this event in the city of Manchester for the first time and we invite you to join us to share these wonderful images as well as having the chance to acquire them on the night through a silent auction! The children all donate their artwork to help the charity raise thousands of pounds to support our vital work. However, as well as celebrating the creative genius of these children, this event will give our supporters the chance to come together before our Legal Conference and network for the evening over drinks, wonderful company and of course, food!

Legal Conference
