Inspired by the RSA’s origin in an enlightenment coffeehouse over 260 years ago, our new Northern Coffeehouse series offers an interactive space to share ideas for social change.

We’re joined by Mollie Simpson, the editor of The Post, an online newspaper covering the Liverpool City Region. Part of the same family as the Manchester Mill and the Sheffield Tribune, the Liverpool Post publishes regular in-depth articles via email and web to paying members, and a less frequent email for those who subscribe for free.

It’s a business model that threatens to disrupt the regional journalism industry and is making waves across the north of England, with competitors already adapting their methods to meet the challenges posed by these new, agile news practices.

Join us most Fridays for an informal lunchtime talk followed by a chance to discuss the topic of the day or anything else that is on your mind, in small breakout rooms. Starting at 1pm and finished by 1.45pm, you can enjoy your Friday lunch break with inspiring speakers and interesting colleagues.
