Details of future VdGS Meetings

Summer and Autumn 2018 meetings yet to be arranged.

Meetings are meant for people who are interested in the viol to get together to learn more and meet each other. They are a great place for newcomers to start as well as a forum for the latest research and ideas to be debated. There are always a number of different speakers and live music. There are usually three meetings each year (normally in March, June and November), at least one of which is in central London.
Our meetings are free to members, but a small charge or donation is requested from non-members.
