The new venue for this event has been confirmed and booking has reopened.

Winged Scalpel, Cambridgeshire surgeon Richard Villar’s first memoir, is a deeply personal story of a world that most of us will never experience. In this moving and riveting account of his career in the SAS, Richard recounts the difficulties, dangers and sometimes downright impossibility of providing medical aid in disaster areas and war zones. He provides a window onto an environment where nothing – not power, not water, not shelter and certainly not law and order – can be taken for granted.

Join us to hear Richard discuss the book, his career and the world of the SAS surgeon. This will be a fascinating evening with an enlightening and personable author as Richard takes us beyond the scope of the news cameras and into the depths of some of the most dangerous and distant areas of the world.
