Branch EMD East Midlands

East Midlands [EMD]


Welcome to the East Midlands branch of the RCTS which was founded in 1951 in Leicester

It started in Leicester before moving to Nottingham in the early years. Meetings were held at a number of locations mainly close to Victoria station ending up at the Nottingham Mechanics at their former location nearer to the city centre then transferring to the current building when it opened in 2004.

We meet regularly on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month from September to April and also organise occasional visits to places of interest in the summer
