Events

At the moment most of our events are still on-line - and we plan to keep doing some on-line in the future too, as people do attend these from a long way away! However, we are starting to run face-to-face events ... including the annual Boudica's Brocante on 31st October!

If you join our Facebook group you will automatically get notifications of our virtual Moots run by Alice Kerridge-Crick. If you’re not a Facebook person, don’t worry, the links will be given here for each event. Alternatively, contact us and we can put you on our e-mail list to get the links (please copy out the e-mail addresses to avoid spam).

We are currently investigating mailing list service options. Once we have chosen one, people will be invited to sign up afresh - including those who had signed up to receive notifications from the old Moot web-site. We apologise that we have not yet been able to accommodate that list!


Our on-line events are run via Google Meet. The joining links will be posted on this page well in advance. If you are using a computer you will be able simply to click on the link we provide to join the event. However, if you are using a mobile device (phone or tablet) you will need to download the Google Meet app. in advance and either sign in using a gmail account or create an account - so do give yourself plenty of time to do so!
