Autumn Events Programme

Please note we will be using for booking most of our future events with charge or free. There is a charge element which we get and a fee added by Eventbrite depending on level of the charge. With free events it means we have an idea of numbers and with the charged events, which fill up, the system runs a wait list and sends out reminders. It is not necessary to have an Eventbrite account but you might find it more convenient for your bookings. Many other venues use Eventbrite.
