Open Lectures & Talks'One of the perks I value most about having a bookshop is that our talks series, such as it is (roughly a speaker a month between September – June) enables me to meet professionals in every field (the arts, sciences, even sports) who I would otherwise never have had the opportunity to meet. Some few are well-known to the public - hey! It’s a long way up here, the fee is risible, and the Old Waiting Room wherein the talks take place only holds 50 people tops (60 if they’re skinny). Still, some serious names (serious names with big hearts) have been willing to make the perilous journey above Watford. Anyway, all the talks begin at 7.30 and cost £3 (and that includes a glass of plonk no less.)'
