Landscape visit to Portsmouth

Past Programmes

To find out about the programme in previous years, take the links below, as they become available:

It is with great regret that none of the events that were to have been held from March to early July will take place; where possible, postponed events will be rescheduled.  This is because of advice which has been received regarding the risks of Covid-19 virus. The Field Club takes the well-being of its members and speakers very seriously and we are sure you will understand why this action is being taken.  Currently our events are planned to resume from early/mid-July onwards. However, this is likely to change depending on advice received.

All Field Club members are welcome to attend ANY of the events. Members may bring a guest, joint-members may bring two guests.

Members - please see your newsletter for exact meeting places, and any booking requirements.

Non-members - please contact the section leader or secretary to see if places are available.
