Meetings and Events

Our meetings, held during eight months of the year, are open to the public. They are normally held at Kensington Chapel schoolroom, Watergate, in Brecon, usually on the last Monday in the month at 7: 30 pm. We have interesting speakers, our publications are for sale, and our experienced members offer research assistance. Entry is free and light refreshments are available for a small charge. Our annual programme of meetings and other events now runs from September through to the end of June.
