From September to May we offer a programme of talks in the cinema of the New Park Centre, New Park Road, Chichester on the fourth Wednesday of the month, given by leading archaeologists, authors and academics. Local courses and events are publicised and magazines are available for members to borrow. Refreshments are available in the bar after the meeting, when members have a chance to chat. We welcome non-members at the lectures, which start at 7.30 pm and usually finish about 9 pm. An entry fee of £5 is payable by non-members at the door.
