The Radlett and District Museum is now in-situ behind the Village Institute. By the end of December all material will have been moved into the Museum, from its current space in the Library, and it is hoped to be up and running early in 2020. Watch out for news and also for fundraising events. Anyone wishing to volunteer in any way, please let me know and I will pass this on to Stuart Nagler, Chair of the Trustees.
Thurs 14 Nov at 14:30 with Nigel Rogers as our speaker. Nigel ran the Radlett Antiques Shop for many years and has plenty of tales to tell about it, but, in addition he was a member of the Radlett Players and has also sung at some really high profile concerts.
Thurs 28 Nov at 14:00
A private guide at the Radlett Library, to show us documents and explain the current exhibition by Herts Archives. Anyone who would like more info and to join us, is most welcome. Please email via the Carrier Pigeon.

Our annual visit to the Purcell School of Music with Xmas Concert, Festive tea, and mulled wine. This is a private event exclusively for us, so it is not open to the general public. The wonderful ambience and the display of talent from the student musicians are a perfect and fitting end to our 2019 programme.
