Programme of events for 2021


Following the announcements by Government that restrictions on meetings and gatherings will continue into the New Year, Officers of the Thoroton Society have taken the decision that the first three lectures in our programme for 2021 will now be delivered via electronic media. This will mean some changes to the provisional programme published in the recent Newsletter and on our website as not all presentations are suitable for delivery in this way. We recognise that this does disadvantage a small number of members that do not have access to a suitable computer but we hope that you will all accept that it is better to deliver to as many members as possible, rather than deliver to no members at all.

Due to the limitations of the software that we will be using we will, initially, have to restrict access to Thoroton Society members only. We further recognise that this will also disadvantage a small number of interested non-members who may have joined us at our usual open meetings and hope that they will bear with us in these current difficult conditions. Any spare places will be opened to non-members during the week preceding the presentation.

The next lecture to be delivered in this way will be Heritage Consultant, Dr Anna Scott, and her presentation ‘Pilgrim Roots & Mayflower 400’. This is the presentation that was originally scheduled for December last year. The new date will be Saturday 13 February 2021 at the usual time of 2:30 pm.

Details of subsequent lectures will be sent out using the e-bulletin and website again when we have finalised the changes to the programme.

We wish you all the best in these difficult times and hope to see as many of you as possible in February.
