1. Prof. John Poynton's recent series of Presidential Letters in the Journal and 2. articles in the recent Paranormal Review on the researcher/psychic Dr Alex Tanous. Prof. Poynton and Callum Cooper will be present at the meeting. ALL WELCOME - NO NEED TO REGISTER

Back in the 1960s there was a series of fairly well-attended meetings for discussion of recent articles in the Journal, an activity we have been thinking of reviving. Following a successful try-out meeting in June, our next meeting will focus on two interesting areas of writing in our Paranormal Review.

Themes for discussion

(1) the recent series of Presidential Letters on psychical research and philosphers, taking in some aspects of Prof. Jason Jorjani’s article in the latest Journal, and (2) the articles in the latest issue of the Paranormal Review on the researcher/psychic Dr Alex Tanous.  We are pleased to say that the principal authors concerned, Prof.  John Poynton and Callum Cooper, will be present at the meeting to get the discussion going.


Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available from 6 p.m., and discussion will run from 6.40 to 8.20, with further time until 9 p.m. for people attending to talk among themselves over refreshments, including any that they might wish to bring with them.  For those who prefer, dinner is available in the pub over the road, which can be accessed via a pedestrian crossing close by.
