Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks

Lasham Gliding Society Winter Talks

We are arranging a really good season of Saturday evening events again this winter with something organised every Saturday from the bonfire night party through to the beginning of April. Talks are free of charge and you do not need to be a member at Lasham to attend. Non-members and members of other clubs are also most welcome.

Some dates and talks might change and some not are yet fully arranged but listed below is the current situation. An updated list will be issued in due course.

Saturday talks will usually commence at 6pm and will be held in the Brown Elephant briefing room if it is available. The talks are free of charge but as is customary, a silver collection will be made at the end of each talk for the Lasham Trust or other deserving cause of the speaker’s choosing.

We have new caterers and a table service dinner will be available in the restaurant afterwards. Booking is strongly advised on or 01256 384910. The bar is also available to members and visitors.

All talks will take place at Lasham Gliding Society, Lasham Airfield, The Avenue, Lasham, Alton, GU34 5SS. Telephone 01256 384900
