Provisional Calendar for 2021

With the Covid-19 pandemic none of the team's 2020 public events took place. However many of those events were "postponed", so that we already have a rough idea of our 2021 calendar, though this is obviously a hostage to fortune and the twists and turns of the pandemic.


At the moment all dates are provisional as we need to review thier proximity to other events and inconveniences like exams.
