The Trust organised a number of events each year for its Friends.  These always included a Spring Lecture and a talk given at the AGM of the Friends plus, in most years, guided walks, field trips and study days.  There were also five conferences, two of which were over three days.  A list of these events is below; there are reports on many of them in the Irregulars.  The list can be searched by keyword (using the box to the below right) or sorted by clicking on any of the titles.
