Meetings are usually held on the first Monday in the Month.  The only exception is when the Monday is a Bank Holiday and we then move the meeting to the Tuesday. 

The doors open at 7pm with the talk starting promptly at 7.30pm.

The talks are about one hour long with time for a Q&A session.  The meeting finishes with tea/coffee and biscuits with time to chat to the speaker and other attendees. 

The branch aims to cover many different aspects of the Great War.

Entrance donations of £5.00 are invited and this includes an entry into the raffle.  The prizes are a bottle of wine and several books on the Great War.

New attendees are always given a warm welcome.
