  • Description:

    This is a group led by its members. Each week a class member will present to the group their chosen subject. There is no set format, presentations vary in style ranging from those using Powerpoint to those given in a less formal, conversational style. The talks usually last up to forty-five minutes, sometimes up to an hour. Subjects this year ranged widely through authors, mariners. politicians, artists, scientists, instigators of social change and less well-known people people representative of their time in history. A lively discussion inevitably ensues.


    Note: The Autumn term will be held via video-conference (Zoom).

  • Format: Seminar

  • Convenor: Tony Read
  • I've been a keen member of the group for a few years. The range of subjects/people presented never fails to amaze me.
