Dates for your Diary
Meetings
Tue Jun 21st Monthly Meeting - at Metropolitan - 10am. The Speaker is Towse Harrison "Wedlocked - Women Know Your Place"

Wedlocked – Women, know your place!: Most women in the past had few choices about life and marriage partners. Usually they found themselves ‘owned’ by, or in positions of, dependence on a man; father, husband, brother, guardian.

This is the story of how some came up with drastic and novel solutions when this arrangement went wrong, displaying remarkable strength and resilience in a society whose attitudes and laws were weighed against them.
Tue Jul 19th Monthly Meeting - at Metropolitan - 10am. The Speaker is Paul Barwick on "Georghi Markov and the Poison Umbrella Murder."

During the Cold War between East and West we spotlight the events of September 1978 when Bulgarian dissident Georghi Markov was injected in the leg with the deadly toxin called Ricin as he walked to work along Waterloo Bridge. He died 4 days later.

This was an episode of espionage that shocked the whole world 43 years ago and will be remembered by a mature audience. We examine the reasons why his Countries Government wanted him silenced and who was responsible for this tragic act of assassination. We name the official suspect and ask if it is too late for justice to prevail.
Tue Aug 16th Monthly Meeting - at Metropolitan - 10am. Speaker is Martin Orkin on "The Beatles, their heroes and their music."

A bit about the Speaker
I retired from a career in banking 12 years ago. My talk is about The Beatles, how successful they became and the huge influence they had on other acts of their time; also the rock 'n' roll era of the late 1950s which The Beatles themselves were heavily influenced by.
