Programme of the Egypt Society of Bristol

Following a consultation with its members, ESB events will now be largely via Zoom, except for one lecture in the summer and one in the early autumn that will be ‘in person’ at the University of Bristol.

Attendance for Members is free, and they will automatically receive links at least a week before each lecture takes place.

All lectures begin at 18:45, except where otherwise noted.

Tickets for non-members (£4.00 per person) will be made available via Eventbrite on the same timescale.
