Sir Arthur C. Clarke 100th anniversary dinner

Date: Thursday, October 26, 2017

Location: Glasgow City Chambers on George Square, Glasgow, SD,

The dinner taking place after the end of this year’s Reinventing Space conference, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sir Arthur C. Clarke. The dinner will be held in the historic venue of the Glasgow City Chambers on George Square, Glasgow, Scotland on the evening of Thursday 26 October 2017.

Sir Arthur was not only a space pioneer and famed author but was one of those important in the formation of the mission of the world’s oldest space advocacy body – the British Interplanetary Society.

The Lord Provost of Glasgow will officially open the dinner and we expect a special welcome at ministerial level from the Scottish Government.

We are pleased to confirm that renowned author Steve Baxter will be our dinner speaker. Steve knew Sir Arthur very well and will tell us about their meetings over the years.

You do not need to have attended the RISpace conference to come along to the dinner - but all delegates are extremely welcome!

The Sir Arthur C Clarke Dinner is priced separately from the conference, is open to all, and is an event jointly organised by the British Interplanetary Society and the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation.

Tickets cost £57.50 + £11.50 VAT per diner. Register here.
