Seminar Series
The seminar series will start shortly. These will be on Tuesday afternoons 2-4, these are from a variety of people including academics and students based at Bath and Bristol and also external speakers.

These will also be followed with coffee and a discussion.

This page will be updated as these are organised, so please check back regularly.
