  1. Hi there,
    I signed up for the talking on March 5 about historical characters and I”m in California. I misunderstood the sign up and thought it was 2:30 PM PST. Of course, that would be made no sense for a talk in London. Anyway, is there a way to get a recording of the talk or of this earlier talk from 25 November.

    Kind Regards,
    Laura Sydell

      Hi Laura,

      Sorry about that! I’ll get in touch with the workshop facilitator to see if she can send you a copy and the resources over.

      Best wishes,
