Outclass Learning

The Branch’s Community Outreach programme of talks continues to excite interest, not least with the HA in London.

  Our bookings for 2017 are already looking very healthy.

  If you know an organisation that would like to hear talks with historical topics, please point its speaker-secretary in our direction.

  Take a look at our < Outreach > pages for details of what we can provide for community organisations

Outreach The Next Event

Please note that in January there will be a double bill of talks!

The first at 10.30am;

The second at 12 noon.
