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. Refreshments are available in the bar after the meeting, when there is 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.
We hope that you have an enjoyable experience whether in person or online and ask that you bear with us in trying to achieve some semblance of normality. Future events will of course be subject to any changes in regulations and government advice.
6th December: AGM
Regrettably until further notice there will be no live stream of these talks. We will however continue to experiment with alternative options of recording talks and perhaps making them available via our YouTube channel.
