Merseyside Branch

Merseyside is one of 11 regional branches in England, and part of a wider network of IOP activity across our Nations including Scotland, Ireland and Wales. It is a small but very active branch, committed to sharing the work of the IOP both throughout the region and in Cheshire, with centres based in Liverpool and Chester.

Our activities

As well as a full programme of talks suitable for specialists and non-specialists alike, you may also find us busking at festivals, supporting teachers, collaborating with other organisations in the region, and much more. If you are interested in finding out more, or getting involved, please contact the regional manager Allison Vickers: [email protected].
