Our monthly meetings normally take place in the Seth Ward Community Centre, Luynes Rise, Buntingford, SG9 9SG on the second Monday of the month. Doors open at 1.30pm to give members and guests the opportunity to socialise over refreshments before the meeting commences at 2.15pm with the Guest Speaker starting at 2.30pm.
Due to the current restrictions it is unlikely that we will be able to hold our normal monthly meetings in the Seth Ward Community Centre as this would not allow appropriate social distancing. Because of this, in June we had our first monthly meeting using Zoom video conferencing. This was very successful so we plan to continue using Zoom for our monthly meetings for the next few months. Since presenting on Zoom is very different from presenting in the hall, and is not suitable for all types of presentations, we are likely to use different speakers from those originally planned. The following programme of events therefore shows the normal dates for monthly meetings and the speakers will be added as they are confirmed. Note that the start time for monthly meetings on Zoom is 14:00.
The schedule of monthly meetings is as follows:
November 9th: Fools Gold
Fool's Gold will be presenting some of their favourite songs, but will not stop at the songs. All songs have a story - a history, mystery or tragedy; they like to tell you the story as well as simply perform the song. To help things along they will be using some of the images from their live show to help bring the tales to life - and these will continue throughout the songs too!
Carol and Steve Robson are musicians who have been presenting their mixed story/image/live music shows to audiences all over the UK. They began in the folk clubs of the North East of England, which probably explains why some of the songs are about coal mining!
Carol Plays: Flute, Tenor Guitar, Bass Guitar, Whistles and voice
Steve Plays: Guitars, Ukulele, Bouzouki and voice
December 14th: Valerie Calderbank, A Tour of the Universe
Valerie Calderbank who is an astrologer and cruise ship speaker who will present “A Tour of the Universe” which includes stunning images and video clips.
