Each session includes a main talk, some time to say what you think, dessert and drinks.  It’s fun, relaxed and free. Come and ask anything you like – that’s why over 22 million people have tried Alpha. Invites available in the Welcome area and at Reception – who could you ask? Sign-up at www.goldhill.org/alpha
