Spring 2014

Doreen and Roy Bratby

All remaining lectures in the Spring 2014 season will be held at St Albans School.

Lectures are generally held at St Albans School although occasionally at Verulamium Museum.

The school car park is sometimes crowded; notice will be given in the programme when possible but the School does not always warn us. The nearest public car park is at Gombards where parking is free after 6.30pm.

Meetings are open to all members of the Society; non-members may attend two meetings as guests.
