Events Diary

2022 – Forthcoming events

Moving out and in of Covid restrictions, and then around “guidelines” makes life challenging when it comes to planning and running events. Thinking outside of the box is becoming a way of life in order to keep the Trust’s mission alive. Please rest assured we will continue being mindful of the concerns of our audience and follow Government restrictions. We also need to be mindful about not incurring financial costs to the Trust so please try and support our efforts if you feel comfortable about attending live events.
