A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Windsor

'Founded to research and record local history ... Meetings are held every six weeks and are well attended, with around 30 people usually turning up for talks on subjects relating to the history of Eton Wick and neighbouring town of Eton, or the archaeology and natural history of the Thames Valley area.'

'Formed in 1983 with the aim of securing the long-term future of the Slough to Windsor branch line. Fortunately, British Rail did not close the line and the SWRS has moved on to other things. Today, the Slough & Windsor Railway Society seeks to preserve and study the railway history of Slough, Windsor and the surrounding areas, and provides a haven for local railway enthusiasts to socialise and reminisce ... Every Friday evening, members meet ... for an illustrated talk, usually on the subject of railways.'

'Supports beekeepers and those interested in bees in the Thames Valley area. We are an active society with about 100 members who come from all over the world and from all walks of life. Some of us are complete beginners while others have a wealth of experience, but we all share a passion for maintaining healthy bees and producing high quality honey ... We have an active programme of meetings throughout the year for Society Members.'

'Our Society was founded in 1946 and aims to stimulate public interest in the area. It is dedicated to promoting high standards of planning and architecture in Windsor and Eton and to protecting and improving features of historic and public interest. We also have a programme of talks and outings ... The Windsor and Eton Society is non-party and non-sectarian, but is not precluded from organising events of political or religious interest.

'Each year we invite the world’s finest musicians, writers, artists, and local performers to entertain and delight festival audiences, to celebrate Windsor's special place as a Royal town, and to inspire the next generation of artistic talent and creativity.' Normally held March (Spring) and September (Winter).

'The long-established photographic club for Windsor and the surrounding area. The Society normally meets ... at 7.45 pm on Mondays. It draws together local amateur photographers at all levels of experience and ability, including absolute beginners - in fact there's little our experienced members enjoy more than passing on their skills to newcomers!'
