Exploring Salts Dining Room
Our next quarterly meeting will not be at the usual location…because we’ll be exploring Salts Dining Room at the Dining Room itself.

Now known as Shipley College’s ‘Mill Building’, it’s right next to Saltaire train station. Use the side entrance folks - and please arrive promptly! As well as a tour, there’ll be a talk by Maggie Smith on the history of the building. Not to be missed!

View the meeting poster.

FOR YOUR DIARY - The Club’s next quarterly meeting will be on 4 June at 7pm in the Exhibition Building on Exhibition Road. Derek Barker will tell us about “The Northcliffe Heritage Project”. AGM too.
