Bob Merrett
 From around 1835, the Woodbridge Wits met to share a passion for paintings, literature and the beauty of the surrounding area. The most famous of them was Edward FitzGerald, the translator of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. His life and work is the central theme of the talk, interwoven with details of the lives and achievements of other group members.
