Monthly Meetings are open to all members and entry is free. There are generally no meetings in August and December. Meetings are held with a guest speaker in most months from September to May.

Previously, the meetings took place in the Townsend Hall in Shipston on Stour, but in the light of government guidance, meeting there has been suspended. However, we are pleased to be able to continue with a programme of talks via Zoom or similar, for which there will be no charge. At this stage we are unable to publish a full calendar of events but will provide details of upcoming talks on this page.

Please see below for information on the next talk. We will email members with instructions on how to register for a talk a couple of weeks before it is due to take place.
