The Talks normally start at 7.00 pm in the Discovery Room, Oriel y Parc., Unless stated otherwise.
The proposed dates are subject to amendment as circumstances dictate, and the Friends will try to advise members of any change as soon as possible through this site.
We enjoy around 10 talks per season, and although the Friends cannot guarantee that number every year, it represents tremendous value for the Membership Fee of only £10.00. Visitors are welcome to our Talks, on payment of an ‘on-the-door’ fee of £3.00 per person per Talk.
Please note that space at the Talks is limited, and is available on a ‘First come, first seated basis’. We cannot guarantee access to a Talk, but so far we are happy to report that it has not been necessary to turn anyone away.
