You are invited to what we hope will be the first of many Arts & Science themed events out of Bristol. To kick start the theme we have no less than four illustrated talks on scientific and technical subjects. Curious? You will be glad to know, previous knowledge is not needed.......just an inquiring mind.

During the break we have included an option for a delicious home cooked lunch. The venue only holds a maximum of 60, so don't delay if you are thinking of attending. Friends and family are very welcome.
