When: Monthly on Tuesday afternoons

Venue: Progressive Hall
A Science and Engineering festival in the USA

We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at The Progressive Hall in North Bradley, BA14 0SA. Meetings start at 2:30pm with a 1 hour talk, including time for questions and discussion, followed by tea & coffee.

We cover a wide range of topics, giving us a view into the many facets of the modern age we live in. Whether you have had a career in S&E (including Technology), wish to inspire your grandchildren, or simply an interest in the subject, you are extended a warm welcome.

For most meetings the presenter is from within the group, though there is no obligation to present. Occasionally we have an outside speaker and once a year we try to organise a visit to a company or historic place associated with S&E.

There is a £2 charge to cover the cost of the hall hire.

Plans for 2025 include talks on 'Solar Energy' (Colin Jones), 'The development and history of the LED' (Glyn Jones) and 'Design and analysis of HMS Warrior 35 year old mooring system' (Emmanuel Ofusu- Apeasah)

To avoid disappointment please do not attend any events, group meetings or monthly meetings as a visitor unless you have, in advance, contacted the event organiser / group leader or Membership Secretary (for monthly meetings), Thank you.
