|If you can't get to any of our meetings, remember that we do have stands at a number of other events. Watch the list of such events on our front page. You can also visit us at the Holford Centre (our Research Centre in Stanton St.John) or at our Open Day (listed below).|
meetings Fourth Monday of most months
Computer meetings First Monday of alternate months
|Most meetings take place in the Exeter Hall in Oxford Road,Kidlington, OX5 1AB,
just north of Oxford. Occasionally, bank holidays cause a change to the
usual meeting routine.
General meetings in the main (large) hall start at 20:00 with the bookstall and library available for browsing from 19:15 onwards. A sound system is in use in the large hall. There is no 'General' meeting in either August or December.
Computer meetings take place in the side (small) hall and start at 19:30 - these are flagged with an asterisk below.
We also have a page of past meetings - not only can you see what you have missed, in a number of cases we have links to handouts or notes or web pages of links from the meetings.

|Please also note that a group meets on the second Monday of most months in Abingdon under the auspices of the Berkshire FHS. The group's meetings are listed separately. Abingdon was in Berkshire until the 1974 local government reorganisation which moved it into Oxfordshire. Abingdon also has a long-standing (but heavily disputed!) claim to be the county town of Berkshire, it still has a "County Hall".|
