Lectures 2017-18

During the winter months the Society organises evening lectures, which are usually held in the Brora Community Centre at the rear of Brora Primary School, unless otherwise advised. All talks begin at 7.30pm and most are held on a Thursday. Lectures are open to all and there is usually a raffle (donations always welcome) - refreshments and admission are free. Anyone wishing to join the Society will be made particularly welcome.
