The West Midlands Branch is based in Birmingham and organises an annual programme of lectures, visits and other events. The branch has formed a strong collaboration with "Thinktank", the Birmingham Science Museum and a partnership with local University of the Third Age groups, annually arranging at least one of its meetings as a collaborative event at their regular venue.
The Annual Prestige Lecture is the highlight of the programme; the 2011 lecture was given by Professor Peter Atkins and speakers over recent years have included Frances Cairncross, Susan Greenfield and Professor Steve Jones.
The Branch Secretary will be pleased to give any further information and discuss involvement by anyone interested in sharing in the activities of the branch or in assisting on the branch committee. Please contact Hannah Stretton.
