Future Meetings and Events

Meeting Room arrangements for Members' Meetings at Mark Rutherford

The society holds monthly Members' Meetings (except in August), usually on the first Friday of the month, at Mark Rutherford School, Bedford MK41 8PX. The meetings are held in the Drama Theatre (turn right as you enter the school gate). The Drama Theatre has tiered seating which gives us ample seating in pleasant surroundings. Our Bookstall and Library are available at members' meetings. The Bookstall carries our own publications, our Parish CDs and a range of second hand books for you to purchase and the Library contains books and other material for members to borrow. Tea and coffee are served at the end of the meeting.


Please note: doors open 7:00 pm.
Meeting are hybrid and in-person at the school and on Zoom. Start time 7:30 pm.
