There are 11 Societies who meet on different days during the month and at their own specific venues. A map of society venues is on the ‘Find a Society’ page. Each society organises its own programme of lectures and events.

A few of the societies have a full membership and hold potential members on a waiting list. If you encounter a problem in finding a vacancy, please do not hesitate in contacting us at the area and we can advise. Please leave a message by clicking here

For more information about a society’s activities, subscription rates and waiting lists, please contact the appropriate society by clicking on the society’s website address. The Area has provided links to society websites wherever possible. If you have any difficulty contacting a society please email the Area Secretary at
