As part of the celebrations of 125 years of Raleigh in Nottingham, a number of events are being organised by the University of Nottingham. The first of these is a talk by Andrew Ritchie, the inventor of the Brompton bike.
Andrew will be giving a public lecture on ‘Brompton Bicycles: the story so far’ and would welcome the opportunity to answer questions. Andrew has recently stepped down as Managing Director of Brompton Bicycles, but he still has a hands-on role as Technical Director, and his innovative approach to design and in creating a company is an inspiration to other entrepreneurs.The lecture will take place in Lecture Theatre 2 (LT2), Exchange Building, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham. This is the site of the Raleigh factory (on the ring road by Crown Island) and not at the main University campus. Postcode of NG8 1BB. Lecture starts at 5:30. Open to all and free to attend but you must register your attendance by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll be at the talk - I remember visiting Raleigh when I was at school as part of Young Enterprise, I am now a student on the Raleigh site (Jubilee campus) and ride a Brompton!
