Programme

A link to the venue.  Meetings take place 8pm - 10pm on alternate Wednesdays, as listed below.

Non-members are welcome to come along to any of the programmed events. There is a charge of £3 for non-members on "ordinary" nights, and £5 when there is a speaker.

On Wednesdays between our St Michael's meetings and every week through the summer we informally meet for manuscripts in the upstairs room at the White Hart pub in Holywell Hill St Albans, also at 8pm. The first White Hart meeting is free to non-members but they will be asked to pay a fee of £3 for each subsequent White Hart meeting attended.
