Club Meetings, 2018

Please note that we have had to move our monthly meetings to Monday nights. We are in the process of contacting all our demonstrators to ensure they can still make it; the list below is therefore provisional. Some meetings are now scheduled for Bank Holidays; please bear with the Committee while we decide whether to keep these or to change week.

All Monday Club Night meetings are held from 7:30pm to 10:00pm at the Scout Hut, St John's. A £5 guest fee per meeting applies to all non-members (except for the Christmas Social); this is refunded if the visitor joins the club the same evening. Weekend events are usually 10am to 4pm with a £10 guest fee and occasionally a charge for members too, but please phone or email before travelling to make sure.

Weekend shows and other events usually start at 10:00am, although coach trips often involve an early start - please phone or email for details. TBC = To Be Confirmed


Open Workshops, 2018

This is where members invite others in the club to come and visit their workshop for a turning-oriented social event. Please be aware that these events are for club members (and their families, where indicated) only, and not for the general public. Addresses and times will be notified at the club meeting prior to each event.

No Open Workshop dates are available yet. Please come back later.
