Talks and events


In normal circumstances the Society holds talks once a month from September through to our AGM in the following May. The Programme for these talks is published each summer in time for the coming season.  

During the Covid-19 pandemic the Society has cancelled its public meetings and activities.  In place its talks are conducted using Zoom video conferencing

Zoom ID and Passcode for each talk is published shortly before the meeting.

The 2021 programme is here, and the talks of 2020 are here  


Each year the Society conducts guided walks as part of the national Heritage Open Days (HODs) scheme.  These walks were not held in 2020 due to social distancing requirements.  Instead the Society produced a short film with associated plan about selected trees in Jephson Gardens.  To see the film and plan go to Jephson Gardens

Architectural Awards

Normally , every other year the Society makes awards for significant architectural improvements in the town; these improvements must have been completed within the preceding two years and be visible to the public. For more information on the scheme see Awards

The Architectural Awards for 2020 have been postponed until 2021 when the Society hopes to hold this event as normal.

All are welcome at our Zoom talks as they will be when the talks resume physically
