February 2022: Candlemas

Please join us for our first event of 2022, an afternoon of music, poetry, presentations and quizzes; all contributed by members themselves.

The afternoon will officially start at 3 pm and the doors will be open from around 2.45 pm to welcome guests. During the interval we will serve a substantial tea before continuing with the programme which is scheduled to end around 6 pm. The cost of the event is EUR 15.
