Meet the Lecturer

All our lecturers aim to come to the venue half an hour before their talk to meet members and guests, sign copies of their books and partake of the excellent home-made cakes. Here are just some of the photos from the lecturers’ visits.  If you have a photo of meeting one of the lecturers please email it to us so we can add it to the gallery.
