Thanks to your support, we are now in the slightly embarrassing position of attracting crowds that very nearly exceed the comfortable capacity of the hall. So we are introducing a new policy to deal with situations where more people turn up than can comfortably be seated. This policy is based on a guarantee that members (and their guests) will be have a seat provided they arrive by 7:45pm. After 7:45pm, we will try to fit everyone in, but in the event of hitting our capacity limit, we will have to halt further entry to the hall. Hopefully, this will rarely happen ! We have considered moving to online booking, but we don't think that this would be appreciated by our loyal members and friends.
