Upcoming Meetings – 2018
9th April 2018 Heidi Meyer Lord Leycester Hospital
Heidi Meyer, 33rd Master of the Lord Leycester Hospital, will give a colourful and chronological account of the 700 year history of this icon of Warwick. From medieval Guilds and the centre of civic and philanthropic life, to its life as a refuge for wounded soldiers of the Elizabethan Age, these extraordinary medieval buildings are an unbroken legacy from the middle ages.
(Please note, this replaces the advertised talk by Alan Rogers on Warwickshire Policing)
14th May 2018 David Harrison Isambard Kingdom Brunel
Isambard Kingdom Brunel was an engineer of genius, a fountain of original ideas and nervous energy. He was a born actor and a courageous leader, but also a man who was obstinate, unjust, dictatorial and in the end, paranoid. David Harrison’s well illustrated talk tells us of his greatest achievements.
