'Founded in 1968, and since then it has been the principal meeting point for all who have an interest in the past of Abingdon and its region ... The Society organises monthly lectures by acknowledged authorities on topics related to history and archaeology and to those of Abingdon in particular. There is also, during each summer, a programme of visits to sites of particular significance ...  The Local History Group provides a forum and meeting point for members with a particular interest in the local history of Abingdon and its region.' The Lambrick Lecture is an Annual Lecture for the Society held in memory of Gabrielle Lambrick.

'The Society organises a varied programme of meetings and observing evenings throughout most of the year and tries to cater for all levels of experience, from absolute beginners to experienced astronomers. Our closeness to both the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Oxfordshire’s “Space Centre”) and to the University of Oxford ensures a steady stream of high-quality lectures.'

'We have a published programme of events featuring a range of activities to give variety and interest to members, whatever stage or level of skill they are at. These include evenings when members or guest speakers show and talk about their pictures ...'

LECTURES and TALKS2021-22 Programme

'Sett up in 1967 by wildlife lovers, to give an opportunity to learn about the natural world around us, promote conservation, and - just as important - to get out and see it in the company of experts and friends. Butterflies, bats, fowl, flora, fungi: all on the agenda ... We welcome new members, and non-members are welcome at our events.'

'The Marcham Society was founded in 1994 to encourage community interest in the history, natural history and environment of the village and the local area. We arrange eight evening meetings each year with talks by guest speakers or members. There are monthly walks and group visits to local places of interest. Projects include local history, building recording, coppicing and surveys of the churchyard, hedgerows, birds, and butterflies.'
