Our meetings are usually held at the Nordic Centre (Danish Church), 104 Osborne Street, Hull HU1 2PN. This is at the corner with Ferensway, about five minutes walk from the train station and the bus interchange. There is a small car park, free for visitors in the evening, The slight incline to the door makes wheelchair access possible. Meetings are usually on Thursday evenings, and begin at 7.30. Talks last about 45 minutes, followed by questions, and discussion. There’s coffee and tea too, so more chance for members to talk to the speaker and to others. We welcome visitors, asking them to contribute £3 each. Students are exempt from this request.
