As someone who has never been to an AZW event held in one of the museums with guest speakers, etc., how often is the Q&A Panel aspect included, is it when Panel members (of 3 or 4?) are able to be present together with their various timetables, or is it only on a special occasion for the public to ask questions of them ?

Additionally, are questions prepared beforehand for the Panel to view, or are they asked only on the day without any preparation of subjects covered ?

Iíve zero idea of how such things are organised, not knowing anybody personally who has been to one or two AZW events, or even similar events held in other subjects, like in my own other interests - something like a Gardening Q&A with authors/tv presenters.

Some time ago I attended a session at the Army Museum in Chelsea some years ago.
Ian Knight was there too but not as a participant.

It consisted of a group of actors (I think) who played various characters in the AZW,
dressed accordingly The audience asked questions of the characters who gave answers
based on their guesses at the events.

I can't give an opinion on its accuracy or value as I didn't see the whole thing.

That is quite unusual, donít think Iíve heard of that on previous discussions.

I do remember there was an event a few years back, where I think it was mentioned, indeed might even be photographs, that Ian Knight and a few others did indeed sit on a panel for a Q&A, but donít seem to recall it being an aspect of later events, at least not talked about on forums.

Iím sure the Q&A segment itself only lasting 15 mins to a half hour or so.

It just seems an ideal opportunity to put forward a question(s) to several authors/ historians at the same time at a public event, rather than try to interview individually (the latter more for magazines and tv docs)

Iím needing to try and attend such an event, hopefully getting a question or two asked and answered in a new type of AZW environment, for me anyway
