Our Thursday Club events are social outings held on a weekday (usually Thursday as the name implies, but where the situation demands,
on other days of the week) where you can meet up with fellow Woodies. It may be a visit to a museum or a stately home, a walk in the countryside
or a visit to an urban nature reserve, or a pub crawl. We may start off or end the day in a reasonably priced eating house.
We also arrange weekend outings - usually on Sundays - to places of interest or special events.

Events are usually in London or the surrounding areas but we are open to suggestions for other destinations.

Visit to the London Cinema Museum, June 2018 This event is now fully subscribed

Visit to Parliament House July 2018 This event has been cancelled due to insufficient numbers
Visit to Bluebell Railway July or August 2018 Date to be decided

There are no more events scheduled. Further events will be added as soon as plans are complete. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
