As a spontaneous invitation, our programme of talks for the 2018-2019 season was extended to June, to tie in with the ongoing development of plans for the Evesham Abbey site.


Our 2020-2021 season of talks was restricted by the coronavirus pandemic. Indeed we were unable to hold any meetings in 2020. However the programme resumed in 2021, starting with a couple of talks via the Zoom internet facility.
