The annual Linacre Summer Reception in London will be held on Tuesday, 30th May, at the Oxford and Cambridge Club, Pall Mall, in the elegant Princess Marie Louise Room. Drinks and light canapés will be served. We are especially delighted that Dr Quintin Colville, Curator of Naval History at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, and a former Linacre Junior Research Fellow, will be giving an illustrated talk on the life of Lady Emma Hamilton--the subject of a recent major special exhibition at the National Maritime Museum.
All Linacre Old Members (and their partners and children or Linacre-linked chums) are invited to attend a friendly and informal lunchtime gathering in Gloucestershire which is being organised by Linacre Old Member Dr Annis May Timpson (1977), on Saturday, 6 May, at 1.00 pm at the Royal Oak Inn, Leighterton, www.royaloakleighterton.co.uk . This has been recommended as a child-friendly pub with good food.
Dr Shadreck Chirikure, ACU Visiting Fellow 2017 at Linacre College, will give the ACU Lecture on Thursday 4th May in the Tanner Room, Linacre College, at 5.30 pm. The title of Dr Chirikure’s lecture is “Was the population of Great Zimbabwe (CE1000-1700) similar to that of modern day Hong Kong?” The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception. All welcome.
