Will our Speakers please bring their own laptop etc rather than a memory stick if at all possible; the Branch does have its own laptop but may not be made easily and quickly compatible with your memory stick just prior to a meeting.

Our 'West Country Clock and Watch Fairs' are held and managed by Committee members of the Bristol Branch of the British Horological Institute  (B.H.I.)

With regret  ALL of our talks for 2020 are cancelled. A Programme for 2021 is being created - but check back as we have no dates identified yet.

We meet monthly on a Monday at the 'Globe Inn' near Bath where we have our own dedicated and comfortable room with video cameras, multi-media projectors etc. and an excellent selection of food and drink is available.

 The Globe web site is:   http://www.vintageinn.co.uk/theglobenewtonsaintloe/ 

A map showing the Globe can be found at: Globe Map       -- Register your car to avoid a fine!

You are warmly invited to attend our Branch meetings where you will find a friendly group of keen amateur

and professional horlogists from all walks of life. You may wish to consider joining the B.H.I., their web site is: http://www.bhi.co.uk/    but you do not need to be  a member to come to our Branch meetings.

                             All Branch meetings are completely FREE to attend and no collection is made.

These website pages will be updated  as the site is improved even further by our team of computer experts.
