Programme 2021 – 2022

The 2021/22 season starts with our opening night on Thursday, 2nd September 2021. This year we will return to meeting face to face in room G3 of the Fisherrow Centre. We plan to broadcast our meetings so members who can’t make it to Fisherrow can join us by Zoom videoconference. Some talks will take place by Zoom but will be broadcast in room G3.

Note that our print competitions will be judged digitally until December 2021.

Please come and join us on 2nd September. We have reserved two rooms at Fisherrow so there will be plenty of room for us to greet potential new members.
