Leicestershire & Rutland Ornithological Society
Meetings and Outings

Indoor Meetings


Each year the Society stages eight indoor meetings between October and May. They are usually held on the first Friday of the month, dependent on the timings of the New Year and Easter holidays, and start at 7.30pm. These meetings are all held at The Hall of St. Anne’s in Letchworth Road, Leicester, LE3 6FN (click here for map). There is ample free on-street parking adjacent to the venue.

Additional meetings may also be held at the Rutland Water Education Centre during the year, which will be publicised via this website and The Grebe newsletter.

The meetings feature illustrated talks by experienced ornithologists, artists, conservationists or photographers. They are an ideal way to meet and socialise with other members and the committee, whilst enjoying the excellent photos, anecdotes and varied subject matter of the speakers. All meetings are free to members. For more information, please contact Andy Howes
