AGM 2023

Local History Group Talks

 

 

The Marlow Society endeavours to run a variety of events to cover our main focus of interests, and some which are more social but provide that important point of contact in a diverse Society like ours.

Following our recent experience we have decided to present talks using a mixture of media. Some, usually over the winter, are held online using Zoom which allows people to attend from the comfort of their home on cold, dark evenings. Others, usually over the summer, are held in the main hall in Liston Hall, Marlow which allows people to attend and meet up when it is, hopefully, warmer and the daylight longer.

Talks are normally held on Tuesday evenings.
