FORUM 2000: Members will find that the programme has changed when they arrive for the first session of the new series on Wednesday, September 18. Unfortunately Dr Layinka Swinburne who was going to talk on herbal remedies in Cures from the Garden is unable to come but happily her place will be taken by Dr Stephen Turnbull who is now able to present his talk From Horsforth to Hollywood about the film 47 Ronin. Universal Studios refused permission for his first talk in 2012 but now that it is to be released on DVD on Christmas Day this year he is free to describe his experiences as historical adviser on this fantasy film about a group of Samurai fighting a wicked Shogun and starring Keanu Reeves as their leader. Anyone interested in further information will find it on Wikipedia under 47 Ronin. Forum 2000 meets on Wednesdays in The Grove Centre, New Street, Horsforth from 10am to noon. Everyone welcome. Details are available from email@example.com or on 2583521.
