Presidential Lecture

Join us for the Presidential Lecture on Saturday 3 May at 2.45 p.m

This year we shall be having an additional lecture in our 2013-14 programme, to be given by the Association’s President Professor Jackie Eales. The Northampton Branch celebrates its 75th anniversary this session, having been founded coincidentally on ‘Munich Night’ in September 1938, and we are delighted that the occasion can be marked in such a suitable manner. To the best of our knowledge this is the first visit by the HA President to the Branch in over 20 years. Our hosts on this occasion will be our colleagues in the Northamptonshire Record Society, who have invited Prof Eales to give their Spring Lecture.

For information on applying for tickets, please follow this link.  Tickets are free to HA Members and Branch Associates and the application form should be returned to the NRS Hon. Secretary at the Society’s offices at Wootton Hall Park. The only charge is for refreshments and cheques should be made payable to NRS (N.B. not the HA). The meeting will be held in the lecture theatre adjacent to the Great Hall at St Andrew’s Hospital, Northampton (access is via the Main Reception – please see attached plan of the site).
