Ventnor Botanic Garden launches VBG:Lecture Series

Ventnor Botanic Garden is delighted to announce it is launching a new programme of events to be known as VBG:Lecture Series.

Each month, a different speaker will be at Ventnor Botanic Garden delivering a talk or lecture on their specialist subject. Topics will be anything from art to the environment, with all speakers providing a new and interesting perspective.

It is hoped VBG:Lecture Series will bring together many different people to learn and share knowledge whilst enjoying the surroundings of the Botanic Garden. These events will be free, with any donations received being given to the VBG Friends’ Society.

Kicking off the lecture series in September, Professor Robin McInnes OBE FRSA will be at the Garden on Wednesday 18th, delivering his illustrated lecture, ‘Art, Landscape and Environmental Change in the Isle of Wight Undercliff’.

The lecture will take place in edulis restaurant, on the lower floor of the Visitor Centre and will begin at 7pm. Professor McInnes, author of ‘50 Years Along the Undercliff of the Isle of Wight’ has lived in the local area for some time and is a good friend of the Garden, and so was the perfect choice to help kick off the new programme.

John Curtis, Director of the non-profit making Community Interest Company that now manages the Garden said, ‘Following the success of a lecture presented by Dr. Susanne Etti in July, we wanted to increase the Garden’s ability to teach, as well as its ability to be a hub for all different areas of the community to enjoy and make use of.

We hope VBG:Lecture Series will be able to deliver something new and interesting on a whole host of different subjects and there will be something in there for everybody whether they know the subject well, or if they are just looking to explore further and learn about something new.’

Following the launch in September, the next event is confirmed for Wednesday 16th October when Tanja Rebel will be presenting her talk on the topic of Eco-Philosophy.

VBG:Lecture series shall be taking place every month and potential speakers are encouraged to get in touch if they would like to be part of the programme.

Entry to these events is free, but it is recommended seats are booked in advance. Please contact info@botanic.co.uk or call (01983) 855397, option 3 for more information or to book seats.
