Following the current restrictions due to COVID-19, we have moved our talks online. Details of upcoming talks will be published here. If you are a member, you will be emailed a Zoom link ahead of the talk. If you are not a member but are interested in joining a talk, please email us at and we will send you more details. 

Our meetings are held on a Monday evening, usually the first Monday of the month, starting at 7.30pm.


10th May (3rd May is the May Bank Holiday)
Paaschendaele To Peace? Did the war end in 1918?
A talk by Melanie Gibson-Barton
An illustrated talk providing an overview of the events of the final months of The Great War and into the 1920s. From the Battle of Passchendaele, the Russian Revolution, the Germans’ Spring Offensive, the arrival of the Americans, the Last Hundred Days, the Armistice in 1918, the rebuilding, the Treaty of Versailles and the aftermath in Germany. Did the war end in 1918 or did it only pause?

Following the May meeting, we will have our usual break until September. We are currently putting together our 2021/22 Programme and whilst we would like to think we would be back at our usual venue later this year, it may still not be possible. We will update our Members and this page when our speakers have been booked in.

During more normal times, our meetings take place at The Kingsley School Hall (see How To Find Us page for a map). Guests are welcome; the admission price for non-members of the Association is £3.
