Oh, no! With a bit more notice I might have made it. :(

Can you record it? Is that allowed?

This has been on-off for a year. They were going to have a week of WEJ events last year but it never happened. The lady I spoke with left and it was months before her replacement found her notes in a drawer. We were in touch again at the beginning of the year and they said this time there would be a series of talks and a 'trail'. I gave them details of the Johns planes they actually have in the museum so they could make a trail. I also pointed out the difficulty of having a series of talks as most of the people who might come to them would be very knowledgeable. The talk by DrBiggles seems to be all that is left. I just found this information on their website.
