Spring 2017

Lectures are generally held at St Albans School although occasionally at Verulamium Museum which are marked with (*).

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.

The meetings normally start at 7:45pm.
