On Tuesday, 5 September we welcomed Ailsa Fortune who gave an entertaining and informative talk on her new book 'Par for the Ladies: The Extraordinary Story of the Women Who Golfed at North Berwick’. A great piece of untold social history!


Our Talks Programme for the coming year starting in September is below. We hope its varied and interesting. 

Our talks take place on the first Tuesday of the month from September to the following June (but excluding January), at 7.30pm in Aberlady Kirk Stables.
