Programme 2021/2022


Meetings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at the Royal British Legion Club, Staunton Lane, Whitchurch, Bristol, BS14 OQF. The Club opens at 1930 and proceedings start at 2000. 

Whitchurch is about 4 miles south of the centre of Bristol on the A37 towards Midsomer Norton.  Turn left at the traffic lights at the 'Toby Carvery' into Staunton Lane: the Royal British Legion Club is a short distance up the hill on the left hand side.  There is ample parking but if able bodied please park away from the entrance doors.

Occasionally it is necessary to make a change to the Programme at short notice, and if travelling far we suggest you check  beforehand to confirm the speaker and subject of meetings - see the 'Contact Us' page of this website.
