Our activities

LECTURES

Our lectures, by internationally acclaimed presenters on a wide variety of topics normally take place in the Digby Hall, Sherborne on the first Wednesday of each month (except January and August) at 3 pm and 7 pm.

Visitors are welcome

STUDY DAYS

Each year we hold 3 or 4 Study Days in which the lecturer explores a subject in more detail over a series of 3 lectures Coffee is served between two morning lectures, then a lunch with wine or soft drinks is enjoyed followed be a third lecture after lunch.

VISITS

Residential visits are “on hold” at present but in normal circumstances we organise several residential trips a year, both in the UK and overseas, accompanied by local guides.

SOCIAL

A very sociable and friendly Society we arrange special lunches and dinners during the year. We are hoping to be able to hold our lunch at the Manor House at Leweston School in October and our Christmas dinner at the Grange in Oborne in December. Obviously any such arrangements are at present subject to the Covid-19 restrictions.
