A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Monmouthshire

Incorporating The Breconshire Railway Society: 'The Society was established in November 1970 by, among others, Huw Phillips, John Beardsmore and Harry Rawlins, with some of the original founder members still active in the Society today. About half the members worked in the railways or heavy industry in South Wales, with the others from a wide variety of backgrounds. In the early days there were around 40-50 members and today membership stands at around 70, all united in an enthusiasm for steam railway traction ... The Society provides members with a forum for monthly meetings and the quarterly Society magazine The Coal Tank, both of which are of a high standard and worth trying for yourself'.

LECTURES and TALKS2021 Programme

'AAS holds monthly meetings, often with guest speakers ... All guests are welcome! No knowledge necessary, just a curious mind.'

'Abergavenny Camera Club is made up of a group of photography enthusiasts who meet every other Monday ... where events from the programme happen throughout the year. Our ethos is to have fun and learn in a friendly, social environment ... We deliberately cater for all skills and interests and keep a relaxed and open style. While we run and join in with various other competitions, we focus first on learning and enjoying the pleasures of photography.'

LECTURES and TALKS2021 Programme

'We usually meet at The Borough Theatre ... Visitors to the area can attend any lecture at the Theatre. If you come more than once, please take out membership.'

LECTURES and TALKS2021 Programme

'We are a local volunteer-run charity, formed in 1948 to explore and promote the remarkable history of the town and to keep an eye on new developments ... In normal times, we meet on the third Wednesday of each month (except August and December) ... to hear a talk of local and/or historical interest, and hear about changes in the town and surrounding area. The Society is a friendly and socially active group, and welcomes new members.  As well as meeting regularly, we also organise tours and excursions.'
