Due to the extraordinary times we are in we have had to postpone all of our public engagements and physical events from March 2020 ... until the impact of Covid-19 has passed. We do expect, however, to be staying connected through social media (links on the right of this page) and through blogs, which will be outlining what we are getting up to during lockdown. Please join in the conversation to bring light and hope through difficult times.
