How to measure the contribution of Wednesday Night to our society and to the lives of the individuals who gather each week in the Nicholsons’ salon? By insights gained, connections forged, endeavours catalyzed, new fields explored?

What has the greatest impact? Is it the informal conversations with prominent figures from the upper echelons, or the warm welcome extended to each new guest, making him or her feel instantly at home?

Why is each evening so uniquely enjoyable? Is it the timeliness of the selected topics, or the skillful shaping of the conversation to highlight the knowledge and interests of the assembly?

We need more spaces like Wednesday Night, where people with diverse expertise meet with learners and teachers from all walks of life, to share their opinions on issues that matter.

Bravo David and Diana, and best wishes for all your Wednesday Nights in the future!
