Does anyone have more details of this? I saw a snip in the press today about it.

Found it, Friday 13 March at 7pm. Tickets range from £5 to £15 but are sold out.

The talk has been organised in support of the centenary of the RSGS and/or Edinburgh University.
RSGS = Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

Via our daughter who is a student in Edinburgh I will be going to Mr P's lecture on Friday 13th March. I expect it to be very good as I haven't heard him give a talk live other than a few words when I've had my books signed.

What will be his subject this time, Ken?

As far as I'm aware it is in association with the hundredth anniversary of the RSGS (Royal Scottish Geographical Society) and I think it will probably cover his travels to the corners of the world from a geographical aspect. A pretty big remit but that's my best guess at the content.

Well, Ken, you'll really enjoy it, I'm sure. Michael is very engaging. When he lectured in Washington, D.C. I was riveted to his every word.

Ken, if I can manage to get a ticket for that, I could meet up with you ! I think a few pics of us two together will raise a few smiles. :)
