A-Z of LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Categories
Overview

'The Society provides a programme of historical lectures each year with, normally, a minimum of 3 lectures in the Spring and 3 in the Autumn. In addition, there is a speaker or exhibition at the Annual General Meeting in June. From time to time the Society holds member's evenings which allow participants to bring items or raise subjects for a short discussion. These interactive events can provide some fascinating insights into local history.'

Overview

'The popular indoor meetings are held in the Old Waiting Room, Alnwick Station (what is now Barter Books). Meetings start 7.00pm for 7.30pm. We welcome visitors, members and their guests for a small donation towards meeting costs. Refreshments will be available from 7.00 pm.'

Overview

'Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month from September - May each year ... Meetings are free to members and visitors are requested to pay £2 ... Free refreshments are provided at the end of each meeting and all who attend are warmly welcomed and invited to stay for tea /coffee /biscuits and a chat.'

Overview

'One of the perks I value most about having a bookshop is that our talks series, such as it is (roughly a speaker a month between September – June) enables me to meet professionals in every field (the arts, sciences, even sports) who I would otherwise never have had the opportunity to meet. Some few are well-known to the public - hey! It’s a long way up here, the fee is risible, and the Old Waiting Room wherein the talks take place only holds 50 people tops (60 if they’re skinny). Still, some serious names (serious names with big hearts) have been willing to make the perilous journey above Watford. Anyway, all the talks begin at 7.30 and cost £5 (and that includes a glass of plonk no less.)'

Overview

'Meetings are on the third Monday of each month, except August and December ... at 7.00 pm.'
