Meetings are held in the Society’s rooms on the second Thursday of each month, March to November inclusive, starting at 6.30 pm and preceded by wine and nibbles at 6.00 pm (a small cover charge applies).
An ordinary meeting includes the reading of papers and the presentation of exhibits of scientific interest. An invited lecture is also normally arranged for each meeting.
Meetings are occasionally organised jointly with other kindred societies at different venues. Occasional Symposia on topical issues are also organised by the Society.
