Lunchtime ‘Lites’

So far our talks have mainly been in the evenings (UK time), but in response to those of you asking for something during the day, may we introduce our ‘lunchtime lites’.

These are either brand new talks or shorter versions of others, tailored to give you an interesting, informative and entertaining break during your day.

All of the talks are just £6 and will last 30 minutes (plus time for questions), delivered via Zoom as usual. The perfect break during your working day!

Fly Me to Mayfair

You don’t think of London as a centre of aviation history, but it is! From the days of ballooning in Hyde Park to Tommy Sopwith’s Hart, Hurricane & Harrier aircraft, Charles Rolls and the monuments to the brave men who lost their lives in world conflicts. They are all remembered in this short flypast of West London.
