Future Talks

As we are moving our activities online, we are incurring new costs. Your donation helps support our new channels.



Our YouTube Channel has recordings of past talks.

Please register via Zoom. Information about using Zoom will be supplied with your booking. You will need to install the Zoom app to your computer, tablet or Smartphone. You only need to book one place for each computer, so if you are sharing a screen with someone in your house, you only need one. 

We will open the Zoom meeting shortly after 7pm to give people ample time to get connected, settled in and chat. Please arrive by 7.25pm

 A recording will be available after the event on our YouTube channel. If you prefer, you can watch live on YouTube, but with less participation

Mon 5th April 7.30pm “Cells & immunity” – Andrew Seber
