(We may vary the beginning of the seminars in the interval 3pm to 4pm depending on circumstances.)

The two seminars are run in combination/ alternation. Visit the **main page** to find more information, in particular, programmes of talks for previous years. For the Manchester Geometry Seminar, we usually meet about 3.50 for tea and biscuits; the lecture begins at 4.15pm in the seminar room FA 1. For the Geometry and Mathematical Physics Seminar, we start at 3pm in the seminar room FA 2; after a break around 4pm, we move to the seminar room FA 1. Sometimes there is a different time arrangement.
