Former long-time Hong Kong resident Chris Forse has travelled widely in China since 1978 when only one city was open to foreigners. His travels have taken him beyond the standard tourist itineraries, to the country’s remote regions of Yunnan, Xinjiang and Tibet and across distant borders, accumulating a bank of memories and impressions and spectacular photographs. In the process he witnessed the astonishing transformation of China from an insular peasant society to global economic super-power in just one generation.  Talk length - 55 minutes.

London is like a free open-air museum and art gallery combined – when you know where to look. This talk will show you where to discover a nine-foot dragon, some Grocers camels and a clock that once set time for the whole of Britain. In the words of Walter Beasant; “I've been walking about London for the last thirty years, and I find something fresh in it every day.” By Andrew Warde. Talk length - 45 minutes.
