Dates for your diary

20th June - HK - Gwulo talk #1. I'll present the first talk to members of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS), but non-members are also very welcome to attend. We'll use the JC Cube theatre at Tai Kwun, so I'm looking forward to that as I haven't presented there before.
To check if you've seen this talk before, here are some of the photos I'll show. You can think of it as the live version of Volume 1 of my books.
Pre-booking is required for this event, via the online booking form on the RGS website. The event is also listed on the Tai Kwun website.
Hope to see you there!
