ROBERT HARDMAN ON THE QUEEN AND THE COMMONWEALTH

Thursday June 20th, 2019

6.30pm for 7pm followed by dinner

Author and journalist Robert Hardman discusses his latest book, Queen of the World, with Savilian David Oldroyd-Bolt.

On today’s world stage, there is one leader who stands apart from the rest. Queen Elizabeth II has seen more of the planet and its people than any other head of state, and has engaged with them like no other monarch in British history. 

Our longest-reigning monarch would be twenty years old before she ventured south of Cornwall. Since then, she has visited more than 120 countries across the globe in the line of duty, acting as diplomat, stateswoman, pioneer and peace broker as that world stage has changed beyond recognition. She has transformed her father’s old empire into the Commonwealth – her ‘family of nations’ – and has come to know its quarrelsome leaders better than anyone. In 2018, they gathered in her own home to endorse her eldest son, the Prince of Wales, as her successor.

Written with extensive access to the Queen’s family, staff and those who have worked with her for many years, Queen of the World is a landmark book which is the first comprehensive examination of arguably Her Majesty’s greatest achievement.

 

Cost: £10 welcome drinks and talk PLUS £32 (optional) dinner with wine

A SAVILE SCIENCE AND SAVILE SCHOLARSHIPS COMBINED EVENT

Tuesday June 25th, 2019

6pm welcome drinks for 6.30pm Savile Scholarship Presentations followed by Savile Science Talk. Dinner at 8.15pm-ish

SCHOLARSHIP PRESENTATION – the three scholars selected by King’s College London, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and Goldsmiths and approved by the Club will be introduced by their sponsors.  Each will provide a short description of the additional project work they have, or will be able to undertake, as a result of the award by the Club.

Following the presentation of the Scholarships, PROFESSOR SIR JAMES HOUGH FRS WILL TALK ON RIPPLES FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE UNIVERSE.

He will review progress in the field of gravitational wave detection from the first days of the aluminium bar detectors to the present time where the laser interferometer detectors Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo have allowed gravitational waves to be detected and are opening up a new field of gravitational multi-messenger astrophysics.  Many experimental challenges had to be overcome and new challenges are presenting themselves as we look to further enhance the performance of ground based detectors and look to lower frequencies with the space based detector LISA.

Professor Sir James Hough (Jim) is a graduate of the University of Glasgow where he became Professor of Experimental Physics in 1986 and is the emeritus holder of the Kelvin Chair of Natural Philosophy. Currently he is a Research Professor in Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow.

Chairman – Savilian Ken Allen
