Monthly Talks Summer Term 2022

Our monthly talks take place during our autumn and spring terms; there are normally no talks during the summer term.  However, there will be one talk this summer, as it was postponed from the spring term due to bad weather - see below

The monthly illustrated talks are normally held in the Wesley Hall at the Methodist Church in King Street (opposite the back of the Minster) and begin at 10:30. Teas and coffees are available from the counter on the ground floor from 10:00. Cost is £2 for members and £3 for non-members.

6 May - Roy Norton
“50 years in television production - uncensored!”
Roy, an ex Senior Producer/ Director BBC/ ITV, looks back at some of the great milestones in television history, from pioneers of the 1920-30’s to exciting present day technology. Roy goes behind the scenes, with some hilarious “off camera” anecdotes, including gossip, scandals and some memorable “cockups”. Hear about his experiences working on Churchill’s funeral, Charles/ Diana Wedding, Sir Harry Secombe, World Cup ’66 and many major outside broadcasts, plus a special item - television coverage of the assassination of Bin Laden. Something for everyone - not to be missed.
