Our meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month and our venue is open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start. They are open to everyone so you don't have to be a member to come along - just turn up! Meetings are free for all Buns & Roses members and there is a small charge of £4 for non-members.

These sessions vary from inspiring guest speakers to crafty get-togethers with the odd cake and cocktail thrown in for good measure! You can bring along your craft projects, get advice or learn a new skill and just have lots of fun.
