Our Tea and Just Talk series invites visitors to enjoy a cup of tea while engaging with experts in a friendly café environment. There won’t be any powerpoints, notes or formality here – just the chance to ask questions and to listen to some of Scotland’s leading authorities on diverse subjects. These will include Scotland’s energy future, problems around menstruation, the need for opera and the role it plays in modern society, the impact of dance on neurological conditions such as dementia, forensic science and the role of law in determining which aspects of science are permitted before the court and, in the light of the recent D-Day remembrance ceremonies, the importance of remembering history.
Walk-ins are welcome, but we recommend you register to guarantee your space. Please note that there are limited spaces available for each session. Spaces will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.
