Talks & Lectures

Between June and August 2019 we will be running talks and a lecture series each week. Talks will be on a Tuesday afternoon 1.30pm to 3.30pm in the Sir James Clark Building, (opposite Morrisons supermarket) at the Abbey Mill Business Centre. The Lecture Series will be held each Wednesday night, 7 to 9pm in the reception meeting room at the Mile End Mill, again, part of the Abbey Mill Business Centre.
