The Society holds five meetings each year at Keen House in Calshot St, just off Pentonville Road, close to Kings Cross. These are on a Wednesday afternoon . We normally invite a speaker and the meetings are informal and in a sociable environment. We welcome guests.

Meetings begin promptly at the times advertised but Keen House is open at least 30 mins before during which teas, coffees, chocolate etc are available.
