2021 – 22 LECTURE PROGRAMME

We are pleased to announce that we have a new venue for our lectures at the Edgbaston Park Hotel, on the campus of the University of Birmingham. The hotel is a short walk from the University Station, 15 mins bus journey from the city centre and offers complimentary parking. It is modern and well appointed, and we hope it will offer members the chance to socialise before and after meetings. Lectures will commence at 7pm. If we are unable to meet in person we shall continue with lectures via Zoom.

(Note that the 5th April 2022 lecture will take place at a venue in Warwickshire TBC)
