With restrictions gradually easing we’re excited to be bringing you a range of clubs this month both outdoors and inside and hope you can come along to some too!

Due to popular demand Bowls and Brews is back! We’ve also got a face-to-face club at Platt Fields Market Garden and an exclusive virtual tour of the International Slavery Museum, led by a trained historian! Check out the full list below:
