Wimbledon Society Walks and Talks:

The Society usually plans a wide range of activities, including lectures and walks curated by local experts and visits to historic houses and gardens. We also put together a comprehensive events diary for activities planned by a wide range of local groups.

Because of the uncertainty caused by the current coronavirus emergency we are uncertain as to when it will be possible to fully restart our usually packed programme. All our events are planned taking into account current government regulations and guidance but as we all know these can change quite quickly so the events listed are subject to change.

Do have a look and reserve your place and/or note in your diary the events that appeal to you.

A historical journey that began with the earliest doubts about the teachings of the Church and led to the birth of Calvinism.

‘Pubs of Wimbledon Town’

An online talk by Clive Whichelow

Wednesday 16th March 2022 at 5pm

Between 1861 and 1881 the population south of the railway increased eightfold to 8000, leading to a demand for inns and beer houses. Many survive but others have gone, and this talk uncovers the stories of all the pubs that have been part of Wimbledon town.

The talk will be on Zoom – all members will receive a link by email in good time. There is no charge.

 

 

For online (Zoom events) don’t worry if you cannot come at the date and time shown – the event will be recorded and available on our website after the event.
