Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are usually held upstairs in the Unthank Arms pub, opening at 7:00p.m. for a 7:30 start. On the occasions when we need a larger venue, we move to our second home at Trinity Hall on Cambridge Street.

Attendance varies, but we generally expect to see 35-40 members plus a few visitors at each meeting.

From September we’re offering hybrid meetings. Anyone who wants to, can join us in the pub. Those who aren’t comfortable being in close contact / confined spaces or who can’t get to us for some other reason, can join via Zoom. Monthly meetings are open to our members and most are also open to pre-booked visitors.

Programme 2021/22

Don’t forget to put the dates in your diary if you’re already a member, or get in touch with us to arrange a visit!
