For more details on each programme, directions etc and if you have ideas, suggestions or wish to publicise your group or mount small exhibitions on these days (we don't charge), please contact Supriyo Chatterjee at supriyo@chatterjees.freeserve.co.uk or phone 01943 816893, if possible in the evenings.

We would particularly appreciate if you could help publicise our programme among your friends and acquaintances and in your town, given that we don't have any advertising budget and that the entire programme has been kept going through individual contributions.
