Meetings Programme

Speaker and Event Programme 2020


Covid-19: Our 2020 programme was cut short but, thanks to the likes of Zoom, we have continued into 2021 with well supported monthly remote sessions. See “Latest News” posts for details.

Our monthly meetings and speaker schedule for 2020 is shown below. All lunch meetings take place on the first Thursday of each month at Weybourne House unless otherwise indicated. The bar opens at 11.30am, with luncheon at 12.30pm. We aim to finish at 15.00pm or thereabouts. Accounts of recent lunch meeting talks can be read on our Latest News page with older accounts on our Past Events page.
