Spring 2013

All lectures will be at St Albans School .
Tuesday lectures are at 8.00pm.  Friday lectures are at 7.45pm.

The school car park is sometimes crowded; notice will be given in the programme when possible but the School does not always warn us. There are a few parking places on Romeland Hill and the nearest public car park is at Gombards.

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