Z - all our lectures are open to the public, so yes, members and non-members alike. We will have leaflets and membership information also.

illogicist said...

And how much does it cost? Dress code? Sorry, Im picky about these things.

OceanDream said...

To become a member it costs RO15 per year. To attend lectures its free, even to non-members.

No dress code. Its pretty laid back.

Don't know if the lecturer would let people handle his snakes, but he might!

It would be good to bring a camera along.

Right, thanks OD, I wont be in the country at the time, but ill try to get certain family members (who would be interested in this particular talk) to go along.

Directions to Majan College Darsait from Seeb/Qurum:

• Follow the Qurum Hights road toward Mutrah, and take the exit to
Darsait/Ruwi. Keep left, toward the Star Cinema. If you look on your
left side, you will see Majan college just next to the overpass on the Darsait roundabout.
• Take the roundabout before Star Cinema (under the flyover)
• Double back in the direction you came from, as if you are going back to the. Majan College will be immediately on your right just before the roundabout.
• Either drive in through the security gate and park in the lot inside the walls, or park in the gravel lot just near the turnoff outside of the gate.

The lecture will be held in the main building. Just follow the signs to the lecture hall.
