All our talks are held on the last Friday of the month at the Friends' Meeting House, Wandsworth High Street, SW18.

They begin at 8.00 pm and end at about 9.15 pm, followed by tea and biscuits and a chance to chat to other members. 

The Meeting House is opposite Wandsworth Town Hall, a short walk down from the Spread Eagle pub.
