Winter Talks

Our group meets monthly for Winter Talks and this year these will vary between St Mary's Hall, Braunstone, Leicester and Zoom Talks for those speakers from further afield. All talks start at 7.30pm
We have booked the large hall which faces you as you drive in, not the small one we have used in the past.
Emails will be sent to all members confirming each meeting, and in the case of Zoom meetings, log in details.
