Our 2018 Programme of Talks and Visits 

We usually organise 9 talks and 2 visits each year.      
 
Places on our visits are usually limited in number and only available to members. There is normally an additional charge for each visit to cover items such as admission fees, guides and sometimes transport and/or refreshments. 

Unless otherwise noted below, all talks take place at 8pm in Plaxtol Memorial Hall, School Lane, Plaxtol, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN15 0QD.  See the Map at the bottom of this page.
