SACU’s Early Days: SACU Members Spring Social – Free Event
April 17, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pmFree
– SACU ChinaCafe 2018 Series –
This is an opportunity for SACU members, OLD AND NEW, to get to know one another and learn about SACU’s early days from an informal slideshow followed by a trip to the bar for a drink or two!
SACU was founded in 1965 by Joseph Needham and others and in those days one of the very few ways that people from Britain could visit China was to join a SACU organised tour. The 1971 Tour was documented by Richard and Sally Greenhill, professional photographers, and we are delighted that Sally has agreed to come and show us some of the photos she took at the time. We are sure this will prompt a good conversation about SACU’s early days and its role in providing a window on China at that time.
We also think it would be great for SACU members to know more about our founder and his extraordinary contribution to building friendship and understanding between the peoples of China and the UK, so we will also show some slides about Joseph Needham and his work.
After the slideshow and discussion, we will move downstairs to the Bar where you can buy a drink and continue informal chats with fellow SACU members.
