Programme

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 since 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.
