The Following Meetings have been Scheduled.


We hold our monthly meetings at St Martin at Palace Church.

This is the flint church in its churchyard, adjacent to the Law Courts, near the Adam & Eve PH and Wig & Pen PH.

St. Martin at Palace,  15 St Martin-At-Palace Plain, Norwich     NR3 1RW


The meetings will start at 7.30pm as usual, on the first Thursday of the month.

As usual there will be tea and coffee after the meeting, and there are two pubs nearby for those wishing to continue discussions.

There is easy car parking nearby. Some free on street, some metered and St Helen’s Carpark has an evening charge of £1.60. The venue is a four minute walk from Tombland bus stops, down Palace Street.

The map below shows the location, the zoomable map at the bottom nearly gets the location right. ,
