Changing Times lectures relaunch!

Home Page Display, News
Now in their 27th year, the Changing Times lectures, organised and presented by Andy in south east England, are relaunching for 2018 in a brand new venue!

Originally formed in 1991 by Barry Reynolds, Andy and other researchers as a branch of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies, the regular gatherings at the Burgess Hill Scout Centre in West Sussex gradually expanded to embrace other subjects and became more formalised presentations. Morphing into Southern Circular Research and then Changing Times, run by Andy and his wife Helen Sewell, the lectures have continued in the same room for over quarter of a century.

Now… it’s time for Changing Times to change!  For it is relaunching on 3rd April 2018 at 8pm in a new, bigger and better, venue! Remaining in Burgess Hill, which is a useful place for many people to get to, the new venue is now the very nice Cyprus Hall, with much more space, comfier seats, no staircase and a closer proximity to the railway station (on the London to Brighton line) – and there are several nearby coffee shops and pubs! As with the old venue, it’s directly adjacent to a well-lit and huge free car park (accessed from Crescent Way, off Cyprus Road).

If you haven’t been to a Changing Times lecture before, it’s never too late to start, and this is the perfect chance! The first speaker in the new venue on 3rd April is leading UFO investigator Dave Hodrien speaking on Extraordinary UFO Encounters. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the latest important evidence about this fascinating and ongoing mystery…

Evenings follow the traditional format, with the same friendly atmosphere and an 8pm prompt start – but with better seats, a large projection wall and an in-house microphone system, the experience should now be somewhat more luxurious!
