The Victorian Society organises a wide variety of events. They are publicised first to members in the 'Blue Sheet' with our mailings in February, June and October. Some require booking, others you can just turn up on the day. When they are oversubscribed, a ballot is held, and members get first preference.
For events organised by our regional groups, please see the regional group pages.
Our free travelling photographic exhibition is coming to a town near you...
