NOTE: ALL MEETINGS WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION.

Members will be sent a link prior to the meeting. Non-members: please use the contact form on this site for enquiries.

PLEASE REFER BACK TO THIS PAGE FOR UPDATES REGARDING FUTURE MEETINGS. 

All physical meetings (both St Michael's and The White Hart) will be cancelled while Government recommendations regarding social distancing remain in place.

Our normal arrangements (currently suspended): Meetings take place at St Michael's Church Hall 8pm - 10pm on alternate Wednesdays, as listed below. 

Non-members are welcome to come along to any of the programmed events. There is a charge of £3 for non-members on "ordinary" nights, and £5 when there is a speaker.

On Wednesdays between our St Michael's meetings we informally meet for manuscripts in the upstairs room at the White Hart pub in Holywell Hill St Albans, also at 8pm. The first White Hart meeting is free to non-members but they will be asked to pay a fee of £3 for each subsequent White Hart meeting attended.
