Syllabus 2018 - 2019

Lectures and demonstrations presented by visiting speakers advancing their specialisms
are a major attraction enjoyed by club members and visitors alike.
Prestige Lectures are highlighted and all members of clubs and societies in the YPU are invited.
This ensures an enthusiastic audience for the speaker, whilst enabling visitors to enjoy high calibre lectures not too far from home.
NB. No charge is made for these events, but the raffle helps to defray the evening expenses.
