LRG Guided Walk with Roger Bone
Wed 20 Aug 2014. Meet at 5.45 for prompt 6 pm start.
Meet at the Black Friar pub almost opposite Blackfriars Station.
We are repeating our now very popular annual guided walk in London with our favourite guide again this year. Roger has agreed to take us on his Southwark pub walk by the River, which is a literary-based pub walk.
From the Black Friar pub Roger will begin with showing us the House written about by Gillian Tindall, "The House by the Thames", followed by Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and will then talk about the acting profession in general based in Southwark. He will continue with stories concerning Samuel Pepys and Samuel Johnson at the Anchor Inn and conclude with the story of Thomas Malory, author of Morte d’Arthur and Charles Dickens’ Little Dorrit based at the George Inn close to London Bridge Station and Borough tube station.
Roger will be able to book us a table (given numbers) at the City Tandoori Restaurant at the back of the George Inn to conclude our evening with a reasonably priced meal (meze).
We will stop at three pubs in all for a drink and rest – the Black Friar, the Market Porter or the Anchor Inn and the George before the City Tandoori.
This event is free for LRG members, £5 for non-LRG members (for the walk only). The meal is optional and at participants' cost. Maximum number of participants is 20. Registration (please register by 15 August 2014) for both the walk and the meal is via EventBrite. Click here
Public Service Interpreting and Translation
Thu 11 Sep 2014 6:30 for 7 pm
Presented by Danielle d'Hayer, Associate Professor and Teaching Fellow at London Metropolitan University (LMU)
Danielle will give us an insight into the very special area of public service interpreting and translation, the special qualities required, the constraints of the role and the specialist training available. She will include some information on job prospects and pay. We are also hoping to include a short exercise, based on a typical PSI scenario, so that people can gain a real understanding of the role.
This presentation will be suitable for those already working in PSIT, those thinking of embarking on a career in the area and those who would like to know more, out of general interest.
Coffee/tea and biscuits will be available from 6.30pm; drinks can be bought at the bar.
Free to LRG members; £3 entry for non-LRG
