Programme

Covid-19 Emergency

The 2020-2021 Lecture programme is using Zoom technology, until such time that social distancing provisions associated with the Covid-19 regulations are sufficiently relaxed to ensure safe use of the Memorial Hall facilities. Unfortunately this means that our lectures will only be open to Members of BDHS, who will receive their Lecture invitation by Email for their sole use, until we can use the Memorial Hall again.

Meetings are normally held in the Wynne Room at the Battle Memorial Hall, generally on the third Thursday of each month at 7.30 pm, but please check the programme as occasionally the venue and day may change.
