Events

In view of the on going corona virus / COVID-19 pandemic situation, for the forseeable future all conventional meetings are subject to confirmation. While we hope that our Autumn Meetings will be able to proceed as advertised, this will depend on the developing situation. Until we are able to safely resume normal meetings – our venue has advised that this will not be until October at the earliest – we anticipate that our meetings programme will move on-line, following the success of our first virtual meetings, using Zoom. We hoping to have the same presenters and topics.

This page will be kept up to date to show the currrent position, but all events are liable to  change at short notice.

Those speakers who have been unable to come and entertain us will be re-invited to do so at future meetings, hopefully next year.
