These lectures take place on Saturday afternoons at 2.30pm. Each season comprises four lectures on historical or cultural topics running between October and March based on a theme for the series.use the link below to see the range of subjects which have previously been covered.
Lectures in the 2021/22 series on 'Events that Shaped Britain' will take place in the hall as has previously been the case albeit with a smaller socially distanced audience. We have had to forgo the acclaimed tea and cake for now due to Covid restrictions but have reduced the price to £5 to reflect that.
We are proud of what we have achieved so far, but your active participation will help to secure the future quality of life in and around Wimborne.
