Socotra, a Yemeni Island off the coasts of Arabia and Africa, is like a fantasy film set with its pink rocks, chubby desert roses and dragon’s blood trees like giant mushrooms. Hilary Bradt and Janice Booth visited this UNESCO World Heritage Site in February and, overwhelmed by its bizarre beauty, co-authored the Bradt guide to Socotra which will be published in October.
We are monitoring the public health advice on large gatherings, events and use of public transport closely, and will resume physical Monday night lectures when it is safe and feasible to do so. More information about dates and access will be published by the end of October.
This lecture will be streamed online here. You will need to log into the website to view the content. You can pause and rewind the content, as well as watch at a later time.
There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions to the speaker throughout the event, until 7.45pm.
Monday night lectures are open to Fellows and members and are included in the cost of membership.
