Alumni and guests are invited to join the Cambridge Society of Hereford and Worcester for their spring luncheon and AGM at the Abbey Hotel, Malvern. After lunch, there will be a guest lecture by Professor Gareth Williams on his book Paralysed with fear: the story of polio.

Gareth has written or co-authored over 20 books, including three aimed at the general reading public. You may recognise him from his appearances on radio and TV, which include The Mary Berry Story; and BBC documentaries on The Georgian Revolution (with Lucy Worsley) and polio vaccines (with Stephanie Flanders). His next book, Unravelling the Double Helix: the lost heroes of DNA, is due out in April. (See attached biography).
