Newbury

Civilisations and Society

At our Christmas meeting, we enjoyed a programme of music, readings, poems and a few carols, in St Mary's Church, Shaw, - for our annual Xmas get-together. Mulled wine and mince pies were served in the Church Hall afterwards. Colin was an amazingly good MC - as the photos show! And all of the readings were extremely entertaining and kept us very amused.

The Group enjoys talks on a wide variety of subjects (including politics of the Middle East, a talk on Colour, Nobel prize winners, the Herschel family (including first paid woman scientist in 1700s) – followed by questions/discussion, and preceded by tea/coffee/biscuits.

Our next meeting will not be until 2021!

We are currently full at the moment but you are welcome to leave your name with us for future reference.

  • When: Third Monday of the month, 10.00 for 10.30 a.m.
  • Venue: St Mary’s Church Hall, Shaw, Newbury
