Programme 2019 – 2020

In light of the exceptionally difficult circumstances we are all currently facing, and with great sadness, we have decided to end our Society’s season early. We normally end our season in May. However, for the safety of our membership we have ended the season with immediate effect (20th March) and will reconvene with our new season in September as usual.
