A complete list of all BCNS events planned

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

If you have come to this page from an external link to the BCN Society, if you can get the provider of the link to change it to http://bcnsociety.com we would be grateful.
