The Society usually plans a wide range of activities for the spring and summer, 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 restart these events but rest assured we are working on this and as soon as the situation is safe and government regulations and guidance allows we will resume these activities.


The Society is pleased to announce an active programme of online events for members. We feel these will provide some cheer in the gloom of winter, and all without the need to leave your comfortable armchair.

There is no charge. Don’t worry if you cannot come at the date and time shown here – the event will be recorded and available on our website for one month after the event.

We have an exciting range of further lectures planned for spring and summer – watch this space!
