Talks Programme

MONTHLY TALKS 2023/24

We usually hold monthly talks at the Steyning Centre from September to June, except in December when we hold our Annual Christmas Supper. The talks start at 7.30 p.m. and liquid refreshments are served beforehand. Guests are welcome for £5 each, which is payable at the door.
Our next talk will be on Friday, 15th March 2024, when Ian Everest  will be giving a talk about The Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  The talk will reflect on the origins of the Commission and how it manages to to inspire new generations to honour those who fell for their country.  As Ian puts it in his summary, this is an extraordinary organisation which was created by extraordinary people – all blessed with extraordinary vision.  Ian started his life in agriculture and worked for the Ministry of Agriculture but his growing interest in family and military history led to a change in his career in 1987, when he became the manager of Newhaven Fort.
