Meetings are on Fridays at 8:30pm unless otherwise stated. Non-members are allowed to attend at least 1 or 2 meetings before being required to become members. Contact the Secretary for more information about speakers or the Club in general.

Visits marked star are where we go behind the scenes and see and do things most people can't. These are members only, and it is often necessary or at least advisable to reserve a place in advance.
Other trips are open to anyone, and are a good opportunity for prospective members to get to know us. Just turn up at Cambridge Station and catch the train indicated.
For more information about visits and trips, and to reserve visit places, contact the Visits Secretary or come to a meeting.

Socials are on Mondays at 9:30pm in the Castle pub (on Castle Street) unless otherwise stated, and are open to anyone.

Unfortunately, for reasons beyond our control, it is sometimes necessary to change the advertised speakers and visits; changes will be posted here as they happen. Our email list, which you can join free of charge without having to become a full Club member, also receives notification of all Club events.

We look forward to seeing you!
