General Meetings, Events and Courses

Monthly General Meetings have resumed! See table below for more detail about the speakers.


General Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, at the Baptist Church Hall in Station Road, Tewkesbury.
[Free entry and refreshments for members.] The Church is highlighted in the map on the right.

The meetings start at 10am, with refreshments being served in the foyer from 9.45am. At 10.30 our invited speaker presents their subject. A range of topics both of local and wider interest are presented monthly.

Car Parking There is very limited car parking at the church. We suggest using a nearby council long-term park,the main precinct by Tesco, the car park on Station Road, or the car park past the church (behind Morrisons) which costs only £1 per day.

Groups take turns to provide the three volunteers to staff the kitchen and to write a brief report on the speaker for TUTA News - Thank you groups!


Refunds No refunds will be granted for payment for trips and visits unless at least 2 weeks notice of cancellation is given.
