Lecture Season 2021

As we emerge from the third lockdown, we continue the successful Zoom lecture programme that we launched in Autumn 2020, now interspersed with live talks, where possible. CGT is delighted to offer members and guests an opportunity to participate. A few days before each Zoom talk, an invitation email will be sent out enabling you to join from your own home. Guests must register with admin to receive the joining details. Most talks will be streamed live using Zoom and notes on how to install and operate Zoom can be found by clicking this link. A brief calendar of events follows below with links (where active) to further information. We hope you will join in these events, for which there is usually no charge to members, and that you will find them stimulating and enjoyable.
