The Society always has a lively and varied programme of interesting talks and visits which are selected to appeal to a wide local audience.

Talks are £5 per person per event, but why not consider joining for just £10 per year? Entry to talks would then be free!

Talks usually take place in the Cerne Abbas Village Hall which has easy wheelchair access to all areas.

They begin at 7:30pm unless notified.
