STAMMAFest Global has a packed programme of workshops and speakers to get you thinking about all things stammer-related. But, just as important (some would say more so!) is the chance to socialise with your stammering tribe.
There will be plenty of chances to catch up with old friends as well as meet new people. Take a look at what's on offer:
On Wednesday 25th August join us to celebrate the official start to STAMMAFest Global with Welcome Drinks at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Crypt. This historic site is one of Liverpool's architectural gems. Meet everyone here to start STAMMAFest Global in style!
Friday afternoon sees everyone jumping on coaches for a sightseeing tour of Liverpool!
The coach will stop off a couple of times so there will be a chance to take photos and get a closer look at this amazing city.
Friday Night is Quiz Night
After all the sightseeing fun, what better way to spend Friday night than enjoying a traditional British Fish & Chips supper (or vegan alternative)? When everyone is full up it's time to test those brain cells!
STAMMA has hosted brilliant online quizzes since the start of the pandemic and STAMMAFest Global gives us the chance to enjoy the fun of a pub-style quiz in person instead of over Zoom!
We will bring people together in teams to give you a chance to meet new people as well as hanging out with your buddies. Put your heads together and see what surprising things people on your team know!
Pay attention on the tour... there may even be some questions about our host city of Liverpool!
People joining STAMMAFest Global with weekend tickets may also join the quiz night, so it's a great chance to catch up with more people.
Our Saturday night event is kindly sponsored by City Lit. City Lit is the UK’s largest provider of courses for adults and has been providing support for adults who stammer or stutter for over 50 years.
Saturday night is the big party night! We are really looking forward to enjoying a festival style atmosphere with music, entertainment and tasty street food.
We've booked a really exciting party band who are all set to play a mix of songs from the 1960s to modern day classics. Guaranteed to get everyone's toes tapping and people up and dancing.
There will be street entertainers - look out for giant bubbles… balloon modelling… mind bending illusions… interactive juggling… the drone of the didgeridoo… fearsome fire eating… any of these are possible, see what happens on the night!
Rather than a traditional sit-down meal for Saturday night, we're offering a selection of street food from around the world. You can move around the room throughout the evening, mixing and chatting with different people, enjoying building new friendships with others in the stammering tribe.
