Programme of Talks 2023-24     


The 2023-24 season will be a mixture of in-person only lectures at the Borough Theatre, and

lectures on Zoom with an audience limited to 60 at the Melvillle Centre. Information about each

month’s lecture can be found on the This Month page. Members will be sent the Zoom link to
