The 2024 Winter Lecture programme is now being organised on a hybrid system ...

Post Covid19, and the use of Zoom for meetings, it was found useful to retain Zoom  with both its' advantages and disadvantages.  The main disadvantage was the lack of actual contact and physical presence; the advantage is that we can have visiting speakers from literally anywhere in the world, enabling up to date research and practice from USA, South Africa and other UK universities to be presented. Some of our past Zoom talks can be found on our youtube channel at:

The 2024/25 Lecture Programme will use a mixed format - some Zoom, some Face-to-face.  Click the button for details.




The 2024 Summer Programme: click the 'Next Field Trip button.

Field trips are normally only open to members.  Potential new members may attend lectures (face-to-face or zoom) to see how things work.  Membership is basically £20 per year, with reductions available for students and two members at one address.
