Speaking this month we have:
- Two mini talks
- Sylvia Pullen – Greek Idyll
- Barbara Brooks – French Polynesia
- Gavin A. Fernandes – Stories from the Silk Road
Our first speaker is long term club member, photographer and regular speaker Gavin A Fernandes who won a place on an overland trip travelling across central Asia last summer.
Stories from the Silk Road 2012 – tales from an overland journey from Turkey to China across central Asia featuring shrines in Iran, gas craters in Turkmenistan, wild horses and glaciers in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and riots in Xian… and being followed by a Japanese film crew making a travel documentary…
By tradition we follow this meeting with a New Year Party post-meeting everyone is invited to bring food and drink and participate! (We have permission from the church for you to bring wine, but beer, cider and spirits are not allowed)
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.
