Due to heightened security and large queues, it is suggested you arrive around 10am so that you get in on time.

Some members go together for lunch somewhere afterwards, pay as you go.

I am happy to name a cross for your relative if you cannot attend. Please get in touch with details and the charge is £2.50.
