Come Along to One of Our Fascinating Open Lectures...

We are running two lectures in March that are open to students, parents/carers and members of the public.

The first lecture is being held on Wednesday, 9 March 2011 (PLEASE NOTE the change of date from 2 March) and is being given by Professor Tim Ibell (Director of the Bath University Architecture and Civil Engineering Centre). Titled ‘A Brief History of Bridges – the Aesthetics of Bridge Design’, this is sure to be a very interesting lecture as Prof. Ibell is renowned in his field. Last term he very kindly helped to arrange some outstanding work experience placements and visits for Post 16 students.  His talk should be of particular interest to anyone who is interested in engineering or in any area of design.

A second lecture, titled ‘From Bellini to Barbara Hepworth – Six Paintings from the Museum Collection,’ is being held on Wednesday, 30 March 2011. We are delighted that Julia Carver, Curator of Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, is coming to give this fascinating talk.

Both lectures will start at exactly 7.30pm at Redland Green School in the Post 16 Atrium. There will be a bar from 6.45pm and we hope visitors will come and join us for drinks and nibbles.  All proceeds from the bar will go to the Post 16 Vietnam trip. The lectures will last about 35 minutes and be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

These promise to be fascinating lectures and delightful events, so do come along. To register your interest please email tlyons@redlandgreen.bristol.sch.uk or call her on 0117 353 3433.

If these events are successful, we would like to organise regular monthly lectures from the beginning of the next academic year, as we hope they will contribute to the rich cultural life of the school.
