* In Person meeting venue
Our in-person talks take place in the Renfield St Stephen’s Centre. This is towards the Charing Cross end of Bath Street, close to the
King’s Theatre and Charing Cross railway station. Car parking should be available in the adjacent streets once the parking regulation hours have passed.
After some research, the branch committee chose the Renfield St Stephen’s Centre as our new venue. We will need to pay the commercial rate for the hire of the premises, and we will need to supply our own AV equipment. This unfortunately means that we will need to charge an attendance fee to cover the branch expenses. Based on the average number attending meetings at the old venue, it is proposed that we charge an entrance fee of £4. There will be no additional charge for the tea, coffee, and biscuits. The fee will be reduced to £2 for students and for others at the discretion of the committee. It would be very helpful if you could bring with you the exact amount of £4. We do not have any debit / credit card handling facility.
For the meetings that are marked as "online" an invitation with a link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out a few days before the event via email. To receive this notice, please ensure that you are on the appropriate mailing list held by SOC HQ. If you are unsure, you can check your mailing list preferences by emailing Kathryn Cox or if you know you do not receive branch notices but would like to, you can sign up here (please note these will only be sent to SOC members).
