Lecture Programme for Session 2014 - 2015

Our lectures take place fortnightly, on Tuesday evenings between October and March in the Main Lecture Room of  Ayrshire College (Kilmarnock Campus), Holehouse Rd, Kilmarnock, starting at 7.30pm. We generally have an attendance of between 75 and 100 members at our meetings which last no more than 90 minutes.
Non-members are most welcome to attend any lectures which may appeal to them, but please remember that we have costs to cover and that we usually ask for a £2 donation in our tin at the end of the night.
