Public Events

We arrange open events related to our research where a speaker presents an informal illustrated lecture on a given subject. All are very welcome to attend these events.

Talks commence at 7.30 p.m. in the Hallow Parish Hall, with a short interval during the evening.  Pay at the door – the entrance charge of £3.00, includes a raffle ticket. Refreshments are available.
