Wednesday Lunchtime Seminars

Wednesday Lunchtime Seminars

These seminars take place in term time only, in the Lecture Theatre, 15 Chaucer Rd, Cambridge, CB2 7EF. All are welcome to attend and there is no need to pre-register, just come early enough to report to Reception and claim a visitor badge. Unless otherwise stated, they are all on Wednesdays, from 12.30 until around 2pm.

Please note – all seats are allocated on first-come, first-served basis, and we have an H&S limit of 90 attendees which cannot be exceeded.

Note also that there is no parking available on site. Please do not park illegally on the road outside – in particular do not park on the verges or blocking the footpaths. Cycle racks are available.

For further information, or if you would like to join the e-mail list for information on any of our seminars please e-mail Vicky Collins. All public talks are publicised on the University talks website, which also contains an archive of older talks.
