Time: 1pm, second Tuesday of the month.

'Friends of the RAS' are encouraged to reserve a seat, subject to availability, by email (to ) or letter up until 10am on the day of the lecture. Seats, in the reserved area of the lecture theatre, will be kept until 1255 (when they will be released). Simply turn up before 1255 – but please do sit in the reserved, central, rows!

Seats cannot be guaranteed for ‘Friends’ who do not reserve them.
