New season starting

We hope to restart meetings in the Autumn

We need hardly note that the programme at the start of this year had to be abandoned so it is with pleasure that – tentatively at least – we hope to restart in the Autumn with a programme up to Christmas.  The first session will be on Monday 21 September and will be  The Legend of Orpheus and the Birth of Opera by Jeremy Barlow.

Starting at 7:30 as usual and at the usual place which if you haven’t been before is at the rear of the Guide’s Centre in St Ann St.  By car go down to the end of Exeter St and left before the roundabout into Carmalite Way.  Then left and almost back to St Ann St and there are some green gates on the left into a free car park.  Access is easy for those with disabilities.

It is a modest £3 for non-members.

Please keep an eye on this site or on Facebook in case we have to cancel.

Once we have finalised the remaining evenings we will post the full programme here.

Look forward to seeing you or welcoming new members in September!

POSTPONED MEETING

We regret to say the meeting planned for Monday 23 March has been postponed because of the current Covid-19 situation.  Things are obviously changing fast – COBRA met this morning – so what happens in the future is in the lap of the gods.

We will let you know what we plan to do once we know more of what is going to happen.
