Founded in 1966, Guildford Travel Club has gained a high reputation for the quality of its speakers, including the number of distinguished photographers and writers it attracts from all over the U.K.
The club meets on alternate Tuesdays from October to April at Onslow Village Hall in Guildford, where talks are illustrated by digital photographs/slides projected onto a large screen.
A typical evening programme has the following format:
- Doors open at 7:30pm
- The programme starts at 8:00pm with Chairman's announcements followed by
- Part 1 of the illustrated talk for 45 to 60 minutes
- A break for 20 minutes with complimentary refreshments (tea, coffee, squash, biscuits)
- Part 2 of the illustrated talk to finish about 10:00pm including some time for any questions
All the speakers have an interesting story to tell and a set of photographs to capture your imagination.
