Meetings Programme 2020 - 2021

Because of the covid situation, the Stratford Society has suspended its programme of physical meetings until the end of 2021. Instead we will hold online meetings via the Zoom facility. Each month a speaker will give a presentation of approximately 30 minutes, followed by an interactive session for questions and discussion. The talks are recorded, for later viewing as a video from YouTube.
