Western Joint Branch Events

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will be holding lectures virtually from September through to December 2020. Details on how to attend the virtual lectures will be distributed with the lecture flyers. We hope to return to face-to-face lectures from January 2021, pending health and safety guidance and COVID restrictions.

Unless otherwise noted, there is not normally a need to pre-register to attend lectures; attendance is free and members are all welcome to arrive on the day.
Non-members are also very welcome.
