The Society usually runs an annual programme of six talks on the second Thursdays of alternate months, plus the AGM. These were normally held at the Yew Tree Hall in High Lorton.  Talks at meetings will also be streamed to members using Zoom. Extra events may be added.

For the Zoom talks members need to supply an email address.

Talks normally start at 7.30pm
