R.H.S. Events Page

We have added to our R.H.S. events page with some information sent to us by the R.H.S.   This is for e-talks and other things as listed below.   Physical events from previous years follow below. #StaySafe

     Most of us enjoy a well delivered talk about a subject we are interested in, but at the moment that won’t be possible unless you can find one on-line….     So with that in mind I have asked the speakers listed on the R.H.S. website, plus some of our Partner Gardens, to give me details of any pre-recorded talks, or if they are happy to deliver a live talk via video conferencing (Zoom* or Skype) and have produced the attached details.

* PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO RECENT SECURITY CONCERNS, WE CANNOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF ZOOM, AS THERE ARE MANY SECURITY AND PRIVACY ISSUES AT THE MOMENT, AND SEVERAL LARGE COURT CASES RUNNING IN TO THE MILLIONS.

AS A RESULT, SOME COMPANIES HAVE BANNED THE USE TO ZOOM, INCLUDING:

Google \ SpaceX \ Tesla \ Smart Communications \ NASA \ German Foreign Ministry \ Australian Defence  Force  and many more.

    So dip in and see what you want to listen to or get a group of friends and have a Zoom garden party!    Contact the speaker by their given email to make any necessary arrangements or dive straight in if they are on social media.    I hope you will all find something of interest here.     Before I am furloughed at the end of April I will send any further speaker details I receive before I go.  Enjoy!
