Current & Upcoming Events

COVID-19 Coronavirus

 

Following the Government announcement on 12/03/2020, all indoor public gatherings of 100+ people have been cancelled.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 and its continued effects on public interactions of any size, including concerts, cinemas and even basic shopping or eating, Live Life NOW have taken the sad decision to cancel our previously postponed events. Anyone holding tickets has now been reimbursed. If you would like advanced notification of the rescheduled dates, please add your name to our mailing list on the "Contact Us" page, or click "Receive Updates" below.

 

Rosarii and I have investigated and discussed at length the possibility of hosting these talks as webinars but realised that several things would impact this; in addition to our reservations about this medium and our ability to to deliver an experience that would meet our standards. 

 

Principally, we feel that our talks and workshops have been such a success because of the audience; the interactions with peers and speakers in a live setting is integral to the experience we set out to create, whilst offering an informative and even challenging talk. This, we feel, would all be lost in a webinar, especially for those who would attend with friends and family.
