As it is not yet possible to accommodate a full audience at our talks, we will begin our new programme by continuing to use Zoom (which was successfully adopted last season). We are sorry if this decision comes as a disappointment to those members who were looking forward to a return to live meetings, but the position is under constant review and we will notify members as soon as we can resume normal meetings. The programme does however contain some planned Zoom talks, including an additional lecture in January.
