Event Information

It is our great pleasure to invite you to our Annual Dinner on Wednesday 14 November 2018 at Hilton York, 1 Tower Street, York YO1 9WD

The YPS Annual Dinner is an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company in a welcoming environment with good food and conversation. It is followed by a short reflection on our activities and an inspiring address from our new President and guest speaker, Sir John Holman.

After beginning his career as a secondary school teacher and later head teacher, Sir John Holman founded the National Science Learning Centre based at the University of York, where he is an Emeritus Professor of Chemistry. He also serves as senior education adviser to the Wellcome Trust and the Gatsby Foundation, which commissioned him to research and develop the Gatsby Good Career Guidance Benchmarks now being rolled out in Secondary Schools in England. He is currently completing his term of office as President of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a post held from 2016-2018.

Sir John is also an Honorary Fellow of the British Science Association (BSA), which was originally founded in York in 1831, under the auspices of the YPS, as the British Association for the Advancement of Science. He is delighted to find that we are now a BSA Affiliate Branch for our region.

We are honoured that Sir John has accepted our invitation to be the Society’s President and do hope you can join us in November.
