Summer meeting & AGM 2017

Thursday 13 July 2017


This year we are trying a new venue for our summer meeting – the Brazilian embassy in central London. Unlike all our previous meetings this is an evening meeting on a midweek day. The meeting will include two illustrated talks and the NBC AGM for 2017.  The meeting is free of charge and is open to everyone, members and non-members alike, though obviously only members can vote at the AGM.


The meeting will be held at the Brazilian Embassy, 14-16 Cockspur Street, St. James’s, London SW1Y 5BL.
