Leaving drinks @ Parade then town
Dec 15 @ 15:00 – 18:00

Hello,
I’m leaving Bath next week – would be good if you can come for drinks this Friday! Meet in parade and take it from there…

Open to suggestions on a pub in town… but I like THE BELL, so we’ll say that for now. The Bell @ 7.30ish!?

Alternatively i’ll probably be doing a bit of a pub crawl around Bath with my folks and brother on Sunday so come drink beer.

Enchanted Christmas at Westonbirt Arboretum @ Marchant's
Dec 16 @ 14:00 – 20:00

Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, is based in Gloucestershire and located three miles from the traditional Cotswolds market town of Tetbury.

At the heart of the Enchanted Christmas event lies a wonderful illuminated trail which celebrates Westonbirt’s tree collection. A new lighting design is created each year, taking in around a mile of the arboretum’s paths – about a 45-minute walk, pushchair-friendly and accessible by wheelchair or mobility scooter.
The trail puts Westonbirt’s trees in a whole new light and in addition to these unique specimens, they’ll have plenty of wintry magic for you to enjoy and get involved in along the way.

Protestival Evening Session: Homelessness and Mental Health @ St James Wine Vaults
Dec 20 @ 19:00 – 22:00

Come one and come all, to the last Evening Session of 2017.

At our Evening Session last month, we had a think about what issues are important to us as a group. Two themes that emerged were the two that this session will focus on: homelessness and mental health. We will be dedicating this evening to those who will not have an easy Christmas.

At any one night, over 4,000 people may be sleeping rough [1], and with this comes a number of other difficulties, both in terms of mental and physical wellbeing.

We will be hearing from several people who are working on projects to support the homeless (TBA), as well as playing host to some wonderful musicians as usual.

All money raised on the night through a £1 suggested donation on the door will be donated to a project that we will all decide on that evening. Options will be provided, but suggestions are more than welcome.

While this is a serious topic that needs attention, there is also a festive party – organized collaboratively by several Bath based groups – a few days after this. Do come! The event can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/953733628098558/

Hope to see you all there, keep an eye on the event for more updates!

The Distruptor or the Disrupted @ Brlsi
Jan 9 @ 19:30 – 21:30

On a global and local scale, it’s widely recognised ‘disruption’ is taking place. Entire industries are being turned upside down by new, and often well-funded ventures with the ability to quickly scale and rapidly displace long established incumbents. What does this mean for business? And how can we spot the new ventures with the greatest disruptive potential?
Matt Connolly will explore the trends and insights, and share his thoughts on how these will shape the future of business.

David Nutt: A Lifetime Fighting Non-Science in UK Drug Policy @ University of Bath
Jan 24 @ 16:15 – 18:15
