LILAC Extras

At this year’s LILAC there will be a number of opportunities for you to takeaway playful ideas for re-use in your own practice.

These are all in addition to your fabulous programme so feel free to opt in or out of whatever you like.  We’ll post information in this section, as well as tweet and announce anything that’s going on during the conference. Tweet us using #lilac18.

Twitter travel games

We know that traveling to conferences can be dull, so we’ve devised four activities to help keep you and your fellow travellers entertained. Don't forget to include #lilac18 in your tweets so you can connect with fellow delegates en route!

Train Craft...

Share your current projects with us! Are you a star knitter, hooker, sewer or folder? We’d love to see what you’re making on the way to Liverpool. Tweet us your project and include #lilac18.

Pack something LILAC…
How many purple pairs of socks do you own? Bringing your favourite lilac tie or scarf? We want to see it! Tweet us your photos and include #lilac18.

Find a friend…
Find a fellow delegate on their way to Liverpool and take a selfie to share with us! Bonus points if you can grab a selfie with a famous Liverpool face, immortalised in statues all over the city! Tweet us your photos and include #lilac18.

Beatles references…
How many Beatles references can you think of? See a pun on a Beatles tune ? We want your best ones! Tweet us your puns and include #lilac18.

At the conference

There are lots of playful and creative activities on hand for you to participate in at the conference, during both daytime and evening social events - keep your eyes and ears peeled, and get ready to take part!
