Gloucestershire Branch Programme

Gloucestershire Branch Programme 2019-20

Meetings normally begin at 7.30pm, and are usually on Mondays.

The usual venue for meetings is the University of Gloucestershire's Park Campus, Cheltenham. Gloucester meetings are at the Oxstalls Campus of the University of Gloucestershire. Both venues have large car parks, and bus 94U runs to both campuses from the centre of both Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Meetings are free for members, and £3.00 for visitors. School and university students are always welcome to attend free of charge.
