TASH Special Interest Days Booking Arrangements

Members have the chance to experience a topic in some depth during a Special Interest Day. The subject might be one in which you already have an interest or one which just catches your eye as potentially interesting. The smaller group, with refreshments and lunch provided, gives an opportunity for relaxed socialising and discussion. Places fill quickly for popular speakers so it is advisable to arrive early on booking dates.

Booking opens prior to the monthly lectures at 9.30 am for Morning members and at 13.30 pm for Afternoon members in the Ballroom at Phyllis Court (PCC) two months before the date of the Special Interest Day. Bookings are only accepted on receipt of cash or cheque paid to TASH (The Arts Society Henley). Members may book for themselves and one other member, in which case names, cash or cheque(s) for both members must be received at time of booking.

Telephone and email bookings will be accepted after 4.30 pm on the first booking date if places are still available.

Please note that places may not be taken by non-members except by prior agreement.

Cancellation: We regret that payment will only be refunded if the event is fully booked and the place is taken by another member on the waiting list.

Pat Righelato is the Committee member responsible for Special Interest Days.
