Meetings at St Luke's start at 10.30am with coffee/tea available from 10.00am.

Evening meetings and lectures are held in the Council Chamber of the Municipal Offices, Promenade, Cheltenham, GL50 9SA, from 7.30 to 9.30 pm, normally on the third Tuesday of each month from September to May. Doors open half an hour beforehand, at 7.00pm, allowing time for people to socialise and see what the Society has to offer, in the way of in-house publications and donated books for sale, library books (for loan to members only), etc., before the official start of the meeting.

These meetings are open to the general public as well as to members of the Society, although a charge a £2.00 is made to non-members ( £1 to those under-18 or students). All are welcome.

Occasional daytime (morning) meetings are held in St Luke’s Hall, St Luke’s Place, Cheltenham, GL53 7HP, from 10.00 am to 12.00 midday, normally on the first Tuesday of the respective month.

This year (2016-17) there will be three daytime meetings in October, November and April.

Again, the doors open half an hour beforehand at 10.00am and light refreshments are served, free of charge, from 10.00 – 10.30 am. These meetings, too, are open to the general public as well as to members of the Society. A donation of £2 from each person attending these daytime meetings, members and non-members alike, to help cover the cost of holding them, is greatly appreciated.

Please note that off-street parking at the Hall is limited and, necessarily, has to be restricted to those visitors to our meetings who are disabled. Please contact Sally Self (01242 243714) in advance if you wish to reserve a parking place.
