The Annual Dinner
Absence, so they say, makes the heart grow fonder – and after two years in which dinner suits and evening gowns seemed like relics of a bygone era, on Saturday, 20th November, it will once again be time to dust them off (maybe a little more thoroughly than in previous years…). Yes, our Annual Dinner at Anglo-German Club returns! Please contact us by e-mail if you would like to attend.
Tour of Jenisch Park
On the afternoon of Saturday, 9th October we will be offering a guided tour of Jenisch Park. Starting at Jenisch Haus, Hamburg museums service will be showing us the undiscovered details of this beautiful green space and telling us about its history. Sign up using the events app.
Last year, even Corona couldn’t stop us from holding what has become something of an annual fixture for our Society: the Freshers‘ Event. Unlike in previous years, however, the 2020 event took place as a very lively set of Zoom sessions!
This year, too, we will be providing an opportunity for those headed to Oxford and Cambridge from northern Germany to get to know each other prior to leaving. If at all possible, we will be holding an in-person event in Hamburg on the evening Friday, 10th September. Please save the date – and contact us – to be kept imformed.
We will be beginning the year with what promises to be a fascinating lecture by Charlie Schoonman, a geophysicist at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven. By interpreting seismological field observations from Greenland and Antarctica, she investigates the physical processes controlling glaciers and their sensitivity to climate change – and at 6pm CET on Wednesday, 24th February, Charlie will be explaining to us precisely how listening to Greenland’s glaciers helps to predict sea level rises in the future. As for previous talks, please sign up using the events app; access codes will be sent out in the days immediately preceding the event.
