Monthly Meetings

We hold a general monthly meeting for all members on the first Thursday of each month. It is held in the Ballroom of the Victoria Hall, Oakham. Doors open at 10.00am for a 10.30 start. There is no charge to members for attending the meeting, and coffee and tea are available for a nominal charge.

A ramp is provided for access by wheelchair users located at the rear entrance of Victoria Hall in Church Street. A lift within the property provides easy access to the ballroom positioned on the 1st floor.

Toilets are positioned on both floors of Victoria Hall catering for wheelchair users and persons with walking difficulties. There is an induction loop system for those who are hard of hearing. Service dogs are most welcome.

At each meeting we announce the latest notices for members and also have an invited speaker. These talks cover a wide variety of subjects of interest and usually finish between 11.30 and noon. There is also the opportunity to meet for lunch afterwards and numbers will be taken at the meeting.

The monthly meetings provide an opportunity to talk to members of the Committee, group leaders and fellow members, as well as reviewing notices about groups and events on our notice boards.

The speaker programme may be subject to change. Please check the latest information on this web site before travelling to hear a particular speaker. The full programme, with additional notes about each talk and the speaker is detailed below.

Visits and Trips

We also organise visits to the theatre, stately homes, national and local museums, and some short holidays. Please see details below - some visits may have a cut off date for expressions of interest, deposit payments or final payments.
