GadSoc Talks

The Gaddesden Society arranges talks four to six times a year: our programme is published in the Diary and available here. Everyone is welcome at these evenings, which are social occasions to meet others in the village over a glass of wine and listen to interesting talks. Entrance is a minimum of only £1, payable at the door, and we take cash or cards. Larger contributions to our costs are very welcome.
