Indoor Events

Indoor meetings take place at Exeter Hall, Kidlington. Indoor meetings are free to members; non-members are invited to make a donation.

The start time is 7.45pm prompt and we finish at 10.00pm at the latest.

The Bernard Tucker Memorial Lecture is also held at Exeter Hall and admission is £2.00.

Outdoor Events

Full details will be published in OOS Bulletins and announced at preceding indoor meetings, or contact the OOS Field Trip Secretary, Stephen Alley. Unless otherwise stated, outdoor events are free of charge and are open to non-members.

Lifts to Outings - Can You Help? We frequently get requests from members without cars for lifts to field outings. It would be helpful to have a list of people from various areas and who fairly regularly attend field outings and who have spare car space which they could offer. If you could help in this way please let Stephen know.
