Society Meetings and Events


Our meetings are normally held on the first Thursday of each month at 7.45pm. These meetings are open to all - non-members are welcome with no admission charges (except for special events). Tea and coffee are available at the interval and a raffle is held to help defray costs.

We usually assemble for our monthly meetings at Chilworth Parish Hall, Chilworth Road, Chilworth, Southampton, SO16 7JZ. (OS Map Ref: SU410184). This hall is to the north of Southampton, lying just off the A27 Bassett to Romsey road next to the Chilworth Arms (formerly called the Clump Inn). A separate page gives maps and directions to the hall.
