Our Programme 2022
The Society normally holds several activities each year, at roughly 2-monthly intervals, in addition to its occasional Colloquia and Saturday Seminars. Regular items include:
~ the Annual Dinner 'Avec Zola à table' in the Spring
~ a group visit to the 'Pélerinage de Médan on the first Sunday in October
~ the AGM towards the end of the year.
The Covid crisis has caused a break the pattern but the Society is now starting to resume something like 'normal business'.
