Learning Unlimited – Pop in pop-up event

Thursday 16th June 2016 saw Learning Unlimited hold its annual event and this year, we opted for a pre-Refugee Week and pre-referendum Pop in pop-up event – an afternoon of short talks, discussion, displays, presentations, and networking. And a tombola too!
