DIARY OF EVENTS - 2020-2021 Season

Meetings are held at 7.30pm in The Corn Exchange, Hungerford. RG17 0NJ

It is with much regret that because of the current Covid-19 pandemic the HHA Committee has had to cancel all meetings in the Corn Exchange until further notice.

At the present time it is unclear when we will be able to resume our normal program of meetings, but it will be made clear on this website when that is possible.

From January 2021 we are presenting a new program of talks to be held using Zoom. Please see the Welcome / Home page for setails of the next talk, with further information available here in due course.
