Society Programme 2020 – 2021

Because of the Coronavirus situation, all currently scheduled society meetings, workshops, excursions and other activities in the first half of this year have been suspended with immediate effect. The health and safety of our members, visitors, guest professional artists, family members and friends is our highest priority. We will keep developments under regular review and hope that circumstances will allow normal society life to be resumed as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and support.

The following programme will be updated during the course of the year as new events and activities are added to the programme.
