Dorset County Museum has a thriving Geology group meeting once a month for a varied programme of lectures and events. Anyone interested in joining the group is welcome to the Christmas event, Ignite!, which will take the form of four quick-fire lectures from well-known local geologists accompanied by seasonal food and drink.
Speakers on the night include Richard Edmonds, Sam Scriven, Doreen Smith and Giles Watts; the talks will cover topics from Fantastic Fossils to Shale Gas Extraction.
The talks start at 7.00pm on Wednesday 11th December, but doors are open from 6.30pm to allow time for mulled wine and mince pies. Everyone is welcome – this is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the group in a welcoming and informal setting.
The event is FREE of charge but a donation of £3 is encouraged to cover costs. For further information please see www.dorsetcountymuseum.org or telephone 01305 262735.
