Christmas Party

For the first time in our societies history, our Christmas party will be very different with an evening of festive fun from the comfort of your very own home, and you will be able to eat drink and be merry and not worry about driving home. The perfect end to a year. 

I would like to personally thank both the Bath and Bristol Societies for their help with our past and future 2020 COVID programme, as without them some of our magical evenings wouldn’t have been possible
