Canterbury Branch Programme


Canterbury Branch Programme 2021-22

Talks are open to the public and are free to HA members, branch members and students; others are asked to pay £3 towards expenses. Branch membership is £10 per year. We hope to return to physical meetings in the venues listed below, but if talks have to continue on Zoom, we will send out further information in due course. Inevitably, because of the pandemic, some details below are still to be confirmed.
