Event Review 2012-3

We had a very successful calendar of events for the 2012-13 season, covering topics as diverse as the aurora borealis, narrow boats, landmine detection and the Tornado steam locomotive. There was also a sold-out tour of the Glyndebourne Stage at the famous opera house.

Here follows a summary of the season's events, with links to slides where available.

Many thanks to all those involved in the organisation and delivery of these events.
