Programme of Talks


Meetings for the 2023-24 season will be held on specified Mondays between September and March at the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne BN21 4JR. Lectures will start at 7.30 pm and are programmed normally to last for between 60 and 75 minutes.

Admission to meetings is subject to the presentation of a member’s non-transferable Membership Booklet. Members, therefore, need to bring their booklets with them when attending a lecture and show them to stewards at points of entry to the auditorium.


Subject to venue capacity each member has the privilege of bringing one guest on payment of £7.00 per meeting.  Guest admission cards can be purchased by members on entry to the Welcome Building on presentation of their membership booklet.
