Where and when
The talk takes place on Monday 8th April starting at 7pm at The Regency Suite – above the Conservative Club in Shanklin in Palmerston Road, just off the High Street.
The nearest car parks are in Landguard Road and Orchardleigh Road, both only two or three minutes walk to the Conservative Club. Parking is free after 6pm.
As we have to pay a rent for the facilities, we have to ask for a donation of at least £3 on the door to make sure we cover all our expenses. i.e. the rent, cost of speakers’ travel expenses and a meal, plus overnight accommodation if needed.
There is a concession for students under 18 (£1.50).
