If you need to know:

  • What alcohol does to the teenage brain
  • Parental legal responsibilities around the supply of alcohol
  • and the most effective way to communicate with your young person, then you and will be very interested to hear what Nathan has to say.  The word on the street is that if you’ve seen him once you will want to see and hear him again, and if you haven’t seen him and don’t see him in October, you will regret it.  Check out our Face Book page at: https://www.facebook.com/alcoholandtheteenagebrain and contribute to the conversations.
  • Kick off is at 7:00, so come early to guarantee a seat.  Some people were turned away from the door when he was here earlier this year.
  • Doors open at 6:30 with parking on the street.
