PROGRAMME 2019

Our programme is prepared 3 months in advance so is subject to additions and changes. Watch for updates here for more details.

FYI: Events headed FYI (FOR YOUR INFORMATION) have been recommended by an EFOG member but no-one is formally co-ordinating the activity. If interested you will need to make your own arrangements and/or chat with others about doing something together.

An asterisk * marks  an event which needs to be booked in advance. Please book asap. Those coming up in in future months are listed at the bottom of this page.

If any member wishes to lead (or suggest) an event on a free date, please contact Peter or Maz first to check that the date is still free. Members can find contact details for those organising events on their paper programme and will also be sent updates via EFOG member e-mails.

The majority of events are open to non-members who may be interested in joining EFOG. If you would like more information please use the contact facility on this website or contact Peter (01992 573638 or 07960 205921) or Ken (020 8524 3960).
