The talks are free for members of the society to attend. Admission for non-members is £2.
For those with mobility problems, there are usually a limited number of parking spaces available on-campus. Otherwise, the Indoor Market multi storey car park (off Queensgate) is only a short walk away from the Lecture Theatre.
