I'd love to go ! What an impressive list !
I don't live in England, but this could be worth the trip !
In which city is it ? Can anyone just walk in there or do you need to be member of the society ?

Well - I'm not a member, but Helen ( my long suffering other half ) and I want to go. I gave a talk to the BAA not that long ago (two infact) and am due to give another one soon - so hopefully they'll let me go smile.gif If I do - I'll see if I can do an interview with Steve, or at least get his paw-print on a copy of his book!

It's in Cambridge - about 80km N of London, or about 1hr from our house smile.gif
