Fresh Expressions round tables are gatherings at which members of the Fresh Expressions team meet with those who have a particular passion for, expertise in or responsibility for the subject matter of the round table.
The meetings are places of mutual learning and challenge undergirded by a common commitment to ensure that fresh expressions grow in a healthy way.
We welcome suggestions or requests to join our round tables, although we may not always be able to accommodate them.
