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 meet about 3.50 for tea and biscuits; each 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.
