Lunchtime Seminars

There is a regular bread-and-cheese lunch, followed by a Seminar, on most Wednesdays in term time. We encourage you to come to these lunches, and the Seminars on a range of astronomical topics which are held in the Sackler Lecture Theatre. There are vending machines in the Hoyle building where snacks and drinks can be purchased at any time. Currently the lunch is suspended and the talks are accessed by Zoom.
