Discussion groupThe Group holds a variety of regular meetings, including discussion papers, seminars, guest lectures and excursions. These are open to all. We do ask, however, if you are planning to travel far to one of the meetings, that you telephone (0121 445 3530 or 0121 415 1096) to confirm the programme before setting out.

If you would like to know more about an event, wish to attend, or are interested in contributing to a meeting, then please feel free to get in touch with the Group Secretary Rosemary Thornes.

Meetings are held in the Chamberlain Room, Cadbury Research Library, Muirhead Tower, University of Birmingham unless otherwise stated.
