Our programme during Coronavirus restrictions

THE BAD NEWS: All our face-to-face events are suspended owing to the Coronavirus outbreak.

THE GOOD NEWS: We are planning a full programme of events soon when we hope the restrictions will be less severe. Meanwhile we have many activities taking place using Zoom online meetings. Our Secretary will keep you informed of these and any other online events by email. Each email will include full joining instructions.

Regular monthly activities

Branch meetings

Our main Branch meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm. Currently they are held online using Zoom, but we are planning to restart in-person meetings in due course.

You can find a full list of planned meetings, with details of topics and guest speakers, here on our website.

Branch meetings are also listed in our welcome leaflet, which you can download here.

These classes match the timings of our traditional face-to-face classes in Didcot and Botley.

Future events

Looking for exercise and other classes?

Our activities page gives details of weekly exercise, dance and other classes at various locations around Oxfordshire and the city. Many of those classes are subsidised by the Branch so that you can attend at very low cost. At present they are all run online.
