Our meetings are held in members homes on a fortnightly rotating basis on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday starting at 8.00pm. Our program covers a wide range of subjects from the sublime to the ridiculous, but always fun, lively and informative! Whatever we do we like to have fun and improve our minds.

Our members’ homes are now no longer just in and around Durham City; they cover a 12 mile radius from the city centre and in the winter months we use Zoom for our meetings.
