Talks programme 2021 – 2022

Our meetings return to the Friends Meeting House for our 2021-22 programme.

Due to COVID restrictions the capacity of the hall is much lower than in previous years, so all places must be booked in advance via Eventbrite. Bookings for some meetings are restricted to those who were members in our previous season. Places may be made available to non-members closer to the date of each meeting.

There will be no ‘annual subs’. Instead, there will be a charge at the door of £4 for those who have booked a seat. Please have the correct money in an envelope marked with your name, to drop at the door. No change will be available.

Face Masks or Visors must worn inside the building at all times, whether moving around or sitting during the lecture. Exemptions are only allowed when wearing a medical exemption lanyard.

Please note, entry to the building is now via the front door. The Friends no longer provide parking for members at the Meeting House.
