Throughout the year we run a programme of events for our members these include: Portfolio Surgeries, Screenings, Q&A sessions, networking events and our annual awards event. We also support our ‘friends’ events that aim to inform as well as entertain us.

We only like to support UK Government led schemes and non-profit organisation’s events. We will advertise to members free of charge events that will be of interest to them. Please send in events that our membership might find interesting.

We also host Master Classes, special guest Lectures and ad-hoc informal socials to just get together for a drink and chin wag.
