Programme

Below is a list of our upcoming events. Please note that not all events are suitable for new members to attend – please contact us in advance if you want to visit.

Unless otherwise stated, all regular meetings run from 18:00 to 20:00, with a ten-minute break around halfway through. Unless otherwise noted, our meetings take place in the Library of Birmingham’s Heritage Learning Centre – see our directions page for details.

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!
