Recorded Talks

Curious Minds Talks

PSNS has been running our Winter Season of talks under the “Curious Minds” banner since 2015. These talks follow in the footsteps of a tradition of Friday evening lectures stretching back to the founding of the Society in 1867!

Our talks normally take place on Friday Evenings, at 7:30pm, in the Soutar Theatre of the AK Bell Library in Perth. 

Curious Minds Season 6 – 2021/22

Curious Minds Season 5 – 2020/21

Our normal activity was curtailed by the pandemic. However, PSNS members and friends stepped up to run a series of talks on Zoom – and you are welcome to watch them hear. We apologise if the quality isn’t perfect – but these were strange times.
