Upcoming events – September – December 2021

We can now announce our programme of Aberdeen Classical Association Zoom talks for this semester.

We’ll be sticking with the Tuesday evening slot, 5-30 to 7pm fortnightly.

We’re hoping to be able to make Gordon Noble’s talk on 26th October an ‘in person’ event, but we have yet to find a venue. Watch this space for updates! If we cannot find a venue, this talk will also take place on Zoom. If you’d like to attend any of the talks please email aberdeenshirecas@gmail.com for joining details.
