Tea Club will be held as usual in the Departmental Lecture Theatre at 4 pm on Fridays in Full Term. After the talk there will be wine and nibbles and a chance to talk informally with the speaker. If anyone wishes to have some time with any speaker before the talk, or have dinner with them afterwards, please contact in advance.
