Armchair Travellers

When we go away on holiday, most of us will take photographs of the places we visit and the things that particularly appeal to us. When we get home, we look at them, show them to family and friends. Then what? Those memories then sit in albums somewhere, often forgotten.

Well, Armchair Travellers gives you the opportunity to get them out, to relive those moments and personal experiences again, by sharing them with members of the group.

Members of the group take it in turns to talk about and show photographs of one of the places they have visited, it could be the UK or abroad.

We meet using Zoom and our meetings usually last about an hour.

We need more members to offer talks. So if you could offer to a talk for us, please email me. It might be that we could have two short talks in a session, if anyone didn't want to speak for the full 45-60 mins.

N.B. For copyright reasons, any photograph used in talks must be the presenters own work.

Bring your own refreshments.
