We have a wide range of members ranging from professional historians and re-enactors through to families and members of the public simply wishing to support the society and find out more.'

About seven of our meetings centre on talks by club members or invited speakers on Greece-related subjects including for example: ancient and recent history, mythology and its impact, ancient philosophy, art and music, life and travel in Greece today and, by no means least, Greek food.'
