The scheduled meetings programme is subject to current government guidelines regarding precautions that must be taken to minimise any risks from Covid-19. This may mean that individual lectures would be cancelled at relatively short notice so everyone planning to attend should check the web site and forum for the latest information beforehand. There is also a probability that the numbers in attendance and systems of access will have to be managed, dependent upon the latest advice and on any requirements that Kirklees may have for the use of their rooms. Once again, do check for details before attending.
