Please do not ring this number for directions. If you require directions call Dan on 07814900607



We will not be splitting between venues. Rose Howey will be the only venue. Please note that all communal spaces are vegan. Accommodation will be in the house. Meetings will be split between rooms in the house and a marquee with a wood burner in the garden. We have two cats in the house for the awareness of anyone suffering from allergies. We also have rabbits but as these are in runs in the garden this shouldn’t be an issue for people’s allergies.

We’re hoping to be able to provide bicycles for people to borrow to go into Liverpool town centre which is approximately a 15 minute cycle. At the time of agenda printing this is not fully confirmed.



Rose Howey is wheel chair accessible on the ground floor with a limited number of ground floor bedroom spaces available. An accessible toilet is currently under construction on the ground floor and will be finished by November (we promise!). Parking at Rose Howey is specifically designated for those with accessibility issues only. If you have any needs or concerns about the venue, please let us know.


It is very important that we know who is coming so that we can arrange for you be accommodated appropriately. Please bring your own sleeping bags & camping mats etc. as you will most likely be sleeping on a floor. If you need a bed for health reasons we have limited numbers available either on the ground floor if necessary, or elsewhere in the house. If you are bringing children and require a family room we have some available in the quieter spaces upstairs. Please let us know with as much notice as possible if you require a bed/family room so we can do our best to facilitate everyone appropriately.



The kid’s space is being run at the venue by the Kids Group. Please let them (and us!) know if you‘re coming so they know numbers (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and cc info @rosehowey.org.uk). They may well be going outdoors so it would be good to bring wet weather gear and wellies. Prince’s Park is easily accessible from the garden at Rose Howey.


All meals will be vegan! As the financial literacy workshop etc. will be happening on the Friday lunch and dinner will be provided on the Friday but please let us know if you require these meals! Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided on the Saturday. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on the Sunday.

Meal tickets can be bought at the welcome desk for all or any meals. If you would like to try the vegan/veggie Egg Café or vegan pizza from Maguire’s Pizza Bar please ask for directions!

Please do buy tickets for the meals you want when you arrive so we know the numbers to cater for. Any special dietary needs? Please contact Jacqui (contact details above).



Please let us know what day and time you will be arriving. You are welcome to arrive at Rose Howey any time from midday on Thursday. Thursday arrivals are for people who want to attend the workshops which will be running on the Friday day time such as the financial literacy workshop. There will be an official welcome desk from 9am on Friday morning.

On Friday and Saturday evening at Rose Howey there will be a bar and board games. A few of our members are organising a punk festival in Liverpool on the Saturday called Dead Good Gathering which we will be offering cheap tickets for £5 specifically for RR members (tickets are otherwise priced at £10). https://www.facebook.com/events/675157529281962/
