Booking information
If COVID restrictions permit this will be held as a joint In-Person and Online meeting. Irrespective of whether you wish to join us In-Person or Online it is essential that you book your place via Eventbrite. Tickets are free but as we almost certainly will be limited as to the number of people who can attend in person – and as we can only accommodate 100 attendees online, we recommend you book early via the Sign up link below (you will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite immediately after registration).

About the Speaker

About the Venue

This is an in-person and webcast (Zoom) meeting.

The meeting will start at 6:30 pm with tea and coffee available from 6:00 pm. We look forward to welcoming you to what we hope will be an interesting series of talks and discussions.

For those of you who are uncertain about attending in-person meetings at present, we are also pleased to announce that all this year’s programme of talks will also be available as a live webcast.

Kelham Island Museum has advised that although no social distancing restrictions will be in place for the meeting, we will need to keep a detailed register of attendees.  To assist with this and to gauge demand for the in-person talk it would be very helpful if you could let us know if you wish to join us using the Eventbrite link below.  Similarly, if you would like to join us online please book using the Eventbrite link below.  We are very happy if you wish to “hedge your bets” and book for both the in-person and online talks at this stage and make a final decision nearer the time.

A group of members and guests will be meeting for a pre-talk meal. If you wish to join, please let us know by emailing meetings.syorks@newcomen.com so we can advise them of numbers.

All Newcomen evening meetings are free and open to all. If you’re aware of any non-members who may be interested in this talk, please feel free to forward this page to them.

Please Note:-  The parking arrangements at the Museum have changed and the car park between the Museum and the river is now closed and is being used by the Museum Cafe and Bar as an outdoor seating area.  Details of the new parking arrangements can be found at www.simt.co.uk/kelham-island-museum/plan-your-visit
