CHRISTMAS LUNCH : Saturday November 25

We will be meeting again at The Albany pub at about 12.00 for lunch at 12.30 or so. As before this is not a set lunch (you can order as much or as little as you like) and we pay separately.

Please let the events secretary Susan Cooper know if you want to come so that we can make the right number of reservations using the following email address:


The rooms are reserved at the University Women’s Club on May 5, 2018: the AGM will be at 11.00 for 11.15 (with coffee) and there is no charge; the lunch will be at 12.30 for 1.00.

The Guest Speaker will be writer and historian Ruth Dudley Edwards.


Ruth’s crime fiction is noted for its satirical tone. Her recent novel, Killing The Emperors, set in the art world, won the Goldsboro Last Laugh Award in 2013. Her non-fiction book, Aftermath: the Omagh Bombing and the Families’ Pursuit of Justice, published in 2012, was named the Sunday Times Current Affairs Book of the Year and won the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger award for non-fiction. Ruth is a member of The Detection Club and was one of the co-authors of its recent publication, The Sinking Admiral.

We will ask you to book later when we can confirm what the lunch will cost.
