Operation FRESHMAN, the first Allied glider borne raid of World War Two

7pm Tuesday 22nd November

Join Dr. Bruce Tocher on Tuesday 22nd November at 7pm as he tells the story of the first Allied glider borne raid of World War Two, targeting the German nuclear weapons programme. Hear how the Operation quickly turned into a disaster for the crews involved.

There is the option of a pre-lecture dinner - a beef casserole with mash and veg / vegetarian casserole – at 6pm. Advance booking is necessary - last orders by Tuesday 15th November.

If you are unable to be there on the night, then simply buy an online pass to watch live on the night or to watch on catch up afterwards. Simply select a session (this is a requirement of our online ticketing system but it doesn't matter which session you select because you will be able to view the lecture at any time once it has gone live from 7pm on Tuesday 22nd November) and you will be sent a link to the page where you'll be able to view the lecture.
