Wednesday, March 21: Our final presentation of the winter season will feature County Press columnist, Keith Newbery, who will be giving a talk entitled ‘Do You Know the Queen’s English?’ Don’t worry, it’s not a boring lecture on the mother tongue but an amusing look at some of the anomalies and absurdities facing anyone trying to understand the most commonly-used and confusing language on the planet. Once again admission will be £5 and hot food will be available.
