Programme of the Egypt Society of Bristol

ESB events are normally held in the Arts Complex, University of Bristol; however, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, all lectures (at least until Easter 2021) will be held on-line via Zoom. Members will receive links a week before each lecture takes place.

All lectures begin at 18:45.

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