Future Events

The Committee of the Wimbledon Philosophical Society is working on future events with local potential speakers, authors, and poets.

Usually we have 5 or 6 live speaker events each year in addition to a Summer Garden Party with poetry in June/July and an AGM in October followed by a speaker. See Past Events for details of the previous programme.

Here are the forthcoming events in date order :
