The recording of Peter Burman's talk 'Stories of remembrance' is now available to view.

Coming events

Society meetings are held on Wednesdays and start at 7 p.m.

Meetings marked (Hybrid) are held at a local venue (to be announced) and also accessible online via Zoom. Other meetings will be via Zoom only.

The principal ambition of our lecture programme is always to honour aspects of our cultural and social history through stories of art, archaeology, architecture and history relevant to Falkland but not necessarily local. We trawl our circles of friendship and acquaintance vigorously for speakers who are active in their chosen fields.

All are welcome – you don’t even have to be a member, just sympathetic to our aims! Just sign up using the form on our "Contact" page. All subscribers automatically receive the monthly Newsletter, with links to the lecture meeting and to anything else that is going on.
