A complete list of all BCNS events planned

(with the bonus of the some non BCNS events.)

We have revised our web presence, using the bcnsociety.co.uk pages for a diary of events, and http://bcnsociety.com for static pages and news events.  All events have a Return to main site link to (surprisingly enough) return you to the main site.
