If you wish to attend, you need to reserve a seat at a meeting, and to do so please email Chris Wrigley eight days before:

Meetings are held at 2.00pm on Wednesdays in Bromley House Library, Angel Row, Nottingham (with your back to the City Hall, the Library entrance is on the left, not far from the Square and is between Barnardo’s and MSR Newsagents), unless otherwise stated. Bromley House is a listed building and, as yet, does not have lift access. Access to Bromley House is available only from 30 minutes before the lecture, and to lecture room 15 minutes before.
