Sat Nov 13thSaturday TalksPaul Rogers: Global Security in an Uncertain World (tbc)

Talk begins at 10.30am
Tue Nov 30thTravelHarrogate and the Royal Hall £11.50 Tuesday 30th November 2021

This trip is to Harrogate for a guided tour of the Royal Hall followed by free time
in a very festive Harrogate for Christmas shopping and coffee or lunch.
The Royal Hall is a Grade 11 listed Edwardian performance Hall that has had a fascinating
history. It opened in 1903 as the Kursaal (German for Cure Hall) but was renamed when war broke out to sound more patriotic. It was restored with Lottery funding and reopened by Prince Charles in 2008. It’s located next to the Conference Centre so we will hear also about how that fared as a Nightingale Hospital during the pandemic but never served a single patient with Covid.
Our trip will be organised following the current Government guidelines. Each member has a duty of care to their fellow members and therefore please do not travel if you have Covid-19 symptoms or have been near anyone who has had them within the two weeks before the trip. We will TRUST that members have had the vaccinations or a negative lateral flow test within the last 24 hours. There will be a forehead temperature check as you board the coach and if it shows an unusually high temperature then you will be asked not to travel. Coaches will be fully sanitised before departure. Masks are recommended to be worn inside buildings and on the coach, out of consideration to others.
