Andy Thomas gives many lectures to all kinds of organisations, both mainstream and ‘alternative’. Well-known groups regularly include Funzing, the U3A, WI, National Trust, Rotary and Probus. Many of these are members-only events – however, the following lectures are all ones which are fully open to the public.
DATES FOR 2021 & 2022
Tues 23rd Nov 2021, 8pm (West Sussex)
Night of a Thousand Crop Circles (presented for Changing Times)
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Changing Times, it returns to its roots with an evening devoted to viewing as many crop circles as possible, in two remarkable presentations.
With so many stunning images in its archives, Andy will be presenting an experiential slideshow of circles from over the decades, some classics and others forgotten masterpieces and curios. These will be set to Andy’s own and David Swingland’s Music For Crop Circles, an instrumental album inspired by the circle phenomenon, which will itself be 30 years old in 2022. Presented wordlessly without opinion or distractive data, this profound and exhilarating journey will remind us of what an astonishing phenomenon this is, wherever it comes from. Events from 2020 and 2021 will be included.
Supporting this feature will be a presentation by Barry Reynolds (creator of the original group, which began as a circle investigation team), celebrating some of the crop formations of Changing Times’s native counties, East and West Sussex. Barry will demonstrate an impressive new way of looking at where they have laid in the landscape over the years, using Google Earth software to take us on a compelling animated aerial journey.
