Past Talks

This is a list of some of the talks and presentations given to the Friends over the last few years. Anyone looking for a talk or presentation to a group should use the contact form on the CONTACT page to make enquiries.


Talks marked FILES AVAILABLE are those where the full talk and pictorial display (if one) can be sent via the internet for someone to give the talk, rather than the original speaker who is likely to be living in the North-East of England.


The items marked ENTERTAINMENT indicate the likelihood of songs and light-hearted quizzes, at the event.
