Day 1: Melbourne Lecture Series 2016

27 Feb 2016
  • Melbourne

Waddesdon Manor, one of the most extraordinary houses in England. Over 125 years ago, Baron Ferdinand Rothschild transformed a barren hill in the countryside outside London into the setting for this breathtaking estate, where he entertained family and friends, politicians and artists, royalty and writers.

Explore the world in fully illustrated public lectures hosted by Australians Studying Abroad. These lectures explore fascinating, general historical questions, rather than being specifically orientated towards ASA’s tours.

For all lectures, places are limited and people wishing to attend are advised to book well in advance. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to obtain seats at the door on the day. We are now charging a minimal fee of $6.00 per lecture to assist us with the increase cost of the room hire. Your support and understanding of this minimal charge is greatly appreciated.

In response to your feedback, the format of our lecture program has changed. Each afternoon now offers 2 lectures, allowing time for a Q&A session at the conclusion of each lecture.
