Programme

Below is a list of our upcoming events. New members are always welcome to attend; please consider contacting us in advance so that we can send you any relevant information or answer any questions you may have.

Unless otherwise stated, all regular meetings run from 18:00 to 20:00, with a ten-minute break around halfway through. We meet at the St. Martin’s in the Bull Ring community centre, usually meeting up outside the church before heading in.

Many members go to a local pub (usually the Briar Rose on Bennett’s Hill) after the meeting to continue discussions, but this is entirely optional!

Programme may be subject to change.
