    Liverpool’s Leaf teashop
    Last year’s party was free, so we’re hoping this year’s is too. For something a bit different, bring in the new year at Liverpool’s Leaf teashop where there (should) be DJ sets and good times.

Maybe you prefer to be the party planner than the person who ends up in the gutter at the end of the night! If so, did you know we offer a Foundation Degree in Events Management? Well, we do! So get on it now!
