Unfortunately, our lecture programme is currently suspended. Normally, Whitby Civic Society lectures are on the third Monday of the month at the Coliseum in Whitby. From January until March and in October and November the lectures begin at 2pm. For the summer months, from April to September the start time is moved to 7:15pm. All are welcome; there is a small admission charge of £1 for Whtiby Civic Society members and £3 for non members.

Please let us know any ideas you have for future talks, thank you. 

 

Thank you for your continued support during these very challenging times.
