What's On in 2016/17
Please note that as from September 2016 there will be a change of venue for our monthly Lectures. They will now take place in the TOM COWIE BUSINESS SUITE at THORNHILL SCHOOL. The change has become necessary owing to the ever increasing attendance - often over 100 - and the lack of space to accommodate everyone. The new venue is much larger and comfortable and there is ample parking there as well. The September newsletter will include a map with details of the new venue (it is not far from St George's). The talks will continue to commence at 7.30pm and last for approx. one hour. Doors open at 7pm - all are welcome. The talks are £1 to members with a £2 cover charge for visitors.
The season will commence again in September with the talks as usual being held on the THIRD Tuesday of each month (see times above). The following are all illustrated talks commencing at 7.30pm and last approx one hour. Doors are open 7.00pm
