Upcoming Events

Events are open to non-members who wish to try out the society.

What can I expect?  Have a look at the following slideshow with images from David Powell.

Booking for events is normally not required.

For outdoor excursions you will need to sign a risk assessment awareness form for each excursion you attend. You are expected to be responsible for your own safety. Please ensure you bring appropriate clothing, footwear and food. Excursions can take anything from 2 hours to all day. Locations can be isolated and exposed on difficult and rough terrain. Check the website for last moment changes or cancellations and sign up for email alerts.

Presentations and lectures start at the advertised time so please arrive a little earlier. Refreshments are served if they are available.

Also, please share cars wherever possible.

If you wish to organize an event send a message to our coordinator who will be happy to help.

To stay up to date with new events and changes to current ones subscribe to our free emailing list on this page. You do not need to be a society member for this and your email address will not be used for any other purposes.
