Podium

 Future Events 

  • All talks take place at the Norwegian Church on Albion Street (see 'How to find us') and booking is not required, unless otherwise stated.
     
  • April's lecture will begin at the earlier time of 7pm (doors 6:45pm), otherwise the talks below start at 7:30pm (doors 7:15pm).
     
  • We always have an interval midway through, often with a complimentary glass of wine, so you'll be coming to much more than a standard one hour talk!
