We have illustrated talks by guest speakers or members at each meeting. Meetings begin at 7pm and usually last for two hours. Non-members are welcome for which we make a small charge of £2. If you decide to join within a month of first attending, this will be deducted from your annual membership fee (currently £20). There's no need to notify us in advance if you'd like to come to a meeting, just turn up on the day!
In addition to our member-only digs, we exhibit at local history fairs, arrange field trips and carry out digs for schools and other organisations.
