Monthly Meetings


NOTE Because the Northampton County Cricket Ground is unavailable in August, we will hold the Monthly Meeting at 2.30 in the Cripps Theatre at Northampton School for Boys, Billing Rd, Northampton, NN1 5RT (see map). Parking is available on the left hand side of the road just past the main school buildings (coming from the town centre). Cross the road to the Cripps Halls building, where the entrance to the theatre is on the left.

A monthly meeting is held for all members on the last Tuesday of every month (excluding December) at 2:30pm promptly in our meeting venue at "The Old Speckled Hen Lounge", Northampton County Cricket Ground, Wantage Road, or Abington Avenue, Northampton NN1 4PR.

( And a Free Cuppa ) !!

Please note that Membership Cards must be shown when attending all Monthly Meetings.


Because there is a cricket match on the last Tuesday in June we NOT be meeting at the County Ground as usual. Instead, please come and enjoy yourselves at a PICNIC at the Obelisk Centre, where there will be good company and excellent entertainment. We will meet indoors if the weather is inclement.


Please note that the doors will NOT be open until 2:00 pm enabling your Committee to prepare the seating etc.
