Speaking this month we have:
Mary Fogarty – ‘Life and love in the Alpujarras’
Life and love in the Alpujarras: time spent in the foothills of the last home of Boabdil the Moor, before he was expelled from Spain. Memories of time spent amidst the oranges and olives and pomegranates – and walks in the hills and travels around towns and adventures with madmen.
Ian Packham – Encircle Africa: the first solo and unassisted circumnavigation of Africa by public transport.
Ian’s biggest adventure to date – a 396 day, 25,000 mile journey – took Ian on the first solo and unassisted circumnavigation of continental Africa by publically available transport. Using this mode of transport ensured reliance on, and therefore greater interaction with, local populations on the coast of Africa.
London branch meetings are held at The Church of Scotland, Crown Court, behind the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a UK public holiday that weekend.
Admission costs, £3 for Members and £6.00 Non-members. You do not need to be a member to attend, and we do not sell advanced tickets, please just come on the day, the doors open at 2:15pm and the program starts around 2:30pm with each talk lasting approximately 40 minutes.
There is no London meeting in August, but we start afresh each September.
