2020 Talks & Trips

TALKS  – Assembly Rooms, Christchurch St West, Frome
All talks start at 2.30pm. Frome Society publications are on sale.
Non-Members £3 extra for outings or talks
TRIPS –   We are trialling a plan to provide two Departure Points.  NOTE THE NEW LOCATION! The main Departure/Return point will be at the Rugby Club – please park behind the clubhouse.
We also pick up members at the Memorial Theatre on Christchurch Street West, at the Bus Stop Opposite to the Memorial Theatre, which will also be the returning drop-off point.  The advertised Coach Departure Time is for the Rugby Club, to which ten minutes is added to determine the pick up time for the Memorial Theatre.

TALKS  – Assembly Rooms, Christchurch St West, Frome

All lectures take place in the Assembly Rooms at the rear of Frome Memorial Theatre (BA11 1EB). Lectures start at 2.30pm . Visitors are welcome but are asked to pay an entry fee of £3.00.

TRIPS in 2020


It is with great regret that the Frome Society for Local Study committee have agreed that due to government guidance health and safety issues caused by Covid 19 we won’t be running any of the advertised 2020 trips, but hope these can be rescheduled for 2021.
After receiving a detailed email from the Memorial Theatre in line with Government guidance and again bearing in mind health and safety issues of our members we are cancelling the autumn lectures but hope to resume face to face lectures from January 2021. We plan to replace a face to face AGM with a virtual Zoom meeting and the lectures planning group are compiling a programme of Zoom lectures, which will be published in Contact Magazine in September.
An agenda for the AGM which will be held on 31st October will be published and nearer the time details of a link to the event will be sent out by mailchimp email.
I feel very sad to be giving our loyal members such poor service in 2020 but Coronavirus has been responsible for this. In view of this much reduced programme the Society wont seek to raise subscriptions until at least January 2022.
I hope all our members remain well and are in good spirits.
Best Wishes
Sara (Chair of the FSLS Committee)
