Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus restrictions, we are unable to offer a full 9 month programme for the coming year. Canford Cliffs Village Hall will not be reopening until January, so we have scheduled 6 lectures from January to June 2021. Lectures take place on the third Friday of each month. We look forward to seeing all of you in January but, obviously, everything is dependent on the situation at the time.

We have made some savings from the cancellation of lectures this year and we expect to be able to give a discount to Members renewing their membership for January. As the new Programme will be only 6 months, the membership fee will also be lower. Further details on all of this in the next few weeks.

The Autumn Tour has been cancelled.

Wine has been part of our global society for over 7,000 years and this lecture tells of its origins and appearance in all societies across the Mediterranean and through Europe. Drawings, paintings, engravings, buildings, pottery and wine labels contribute to the story. David Wright
