Events by Year

Please select a year to view upcoming events:

We have an extensive programme of activities, giving members the opportunity to meet in interesting locations often not accessible to the public. Every year the programme includes a mix of regular activities and new ones that are selected by the Master of the year.

There is no closing date for events unless stated but you are advised to apply before the ticket allocation date. If an event is oversubscribed on the ticket allocation date a ballot will be held; those who are successful will be sent more details of the event and everyone else will be placed on a waiting list and notified accordingly. Applications received after the allocation date will be allocated places on a first-come-first-served basis. Places are often available right up to the day of the event so please do not hesitate to apply for tickets after the allocation date has passed.

Details of all events are correct at the time of publication but are subject to change without notice
