2018-2019 Winter Lectures (provisional)

All Cruising lectures are on Wednesdays, November to March inclusive, begin promptly at 1830 followed by supper in the club and are usually sold out well in advance! If you intend to come, please sign up as soon as the notice appears on the main Club Noticeboard, about 3 weeks in advance.

If you want supper, in addition to signing up for it, it is necessary to order it on the day and book a table. Orders submitted before the lecture will get their food first! If you would like to meet new people, rather than book a table, sit at the Club Table in the River Room, it is intended for precisely this purpose.

Would you like to speak at a Wednesday Lecture? Contact George Trevelyan who is responsible for the organisation of these lectures via the Club Contact Form or complete the Speaker's Request Form.
