Due to the Corona Virus we were forced to cancel our meetings in April, May and June this year. The Committee continues to monitor the risks and regulations and will post any future changes on our website: and via e-mail. PLEASE CHECK before setting off for a meeting. We look forward to seeing you all again.

Tuesday 8th September 7 pm at MT. It is always a great pleasure to begin the Autumn/Winter season with our traditional “CHEESE & WINE” get together. Our Chairman Michael has been working all summer on his wickedly difficult quiz. The food and wine are free, but we kindly ask you to bring along something for the Grand Raffle and of course buy scores of raffle tickets!

Tuesday 6th October 7 pm at MT. “SVALBARD’S SEA MONSTERS!” is the title of our pictorial talk. Since 2014 the Spitzbergen Mesozoic Research Group have excavated fossils of prehistoric reptiles from the Arctic Tundra of Svalbard. Many of the species they found are unknown to man. How did these creatures survive millions of years ago? and how did the excavation team find them? Dr. Aubrey Jane Roberts, post-doctoral researcher in Paleontology with a Master of Science degree and Doctorate from both Oslo and Southampton University is eager to share her vast knowledge on the topic with us. The talk will be in English.

Tuesday 3rd November 7 pm at MT. The Norwegian actress and well-known theatre historian Sidsel Marie Nilsen will be presenting her talk on “PEER GYNT” which she describes as an anti-romantic work. Sidsel has given many talks on a variety of theatre related subjects, including one about her famous father, the actor and theatre director Hans Jacob Nilsen. Don’t miss this interesting talk on a new angle on Henrik Ibsen’s monumental work. The talk will be in Norwegian.

Tuesday 1st December 7 pm – meeting by 18.45. Notice of the Annual Christmas Party will be sent out as soon as the details are in place.

Any changes in our events will be announced here on the website. For those who are not online we will be sending information via post.
