A Nice Cup of Tea

How the tea industry developed, boosted trade, caused wars and kept Britain going through good and bad times.

Understanding Europe

In the run-up to the EU Referendum Michael gave a series of talks entitled “Europe; fact and fiction” which were widely praised for their impartiality.

Now the country has left the EU what are the practicalities of our new relationship outside the world’s largest trading bloc? What will our rights be as UK citizens when travelling, living and working in Europe ? and can our own “United Kingdom” remain united ?

The UK now faces several years of negotiations, so how do we “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative” .

Michael gives informative, entertaining and impartial lectures to help understand the brave new world we are entering.
