Note: Our “face to face” meetings are suspended until further notice because of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are holding meetings instead using Zoom, a popular and widely-used videoconferencing platform.

We hold eight meetings a year, on the last Thursday of January, February, March, April, June, September, October and November. We meet, except where otherwise stated, in Avenue House, which is located in Stephens House and Gardens. Our outreach meetings are held in April in North Finchley and in September in East Finchley. There is an annual dinner for members and their guests in July. Apart from some winter meetings which are held in the afternoon at 2.30 pm, we usually start our meetings at 7.30 pm.
