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.
