2021 Programme


Important notice: Our programme of talks has now moved online using the Zoom platform, due to the current coronavirus epidemic. Tickets for online talks are available from WeGotTickets, ticketing links will be provided next to each talk title in the following list when ready.

We are unlikely to hold any indoor meetings for quite some time yet. We feel that it is our responsibility to avoid risking the health and welfare of our members and visitors.


Our talks are normally all held on the third Wednesday in the month. Talks start at 7.30 pm, virtual doors open at 7.15pm.

Walks are either on a Saturday morning or afternoon, or Wednesday evening, and during the covid pandemic the walks will take place following the Government guidelines at the time.
