Where & When We Meet
Where We Meet
We meet at the Stourbridge Institute, Bell Street, DY8 1AE. The Institute has its own car park, accessed from Bell Street opposite the Crystal Leisure Centre. Entrance to the Institute is from the car park. Click here for a map showing our location. (The map pointer is by the entrance to the Institute from the car park.)
The Institute has a secured door. Our meetings start at 8.00pm on the dot, so on our club nights there will be someone stationed by the door (the large glass one furthest from the car park entrance) to admit members and visitors from around 7.30pm until 7.55pm. If you arrive after that time you will have to go to the single door to the right and ring the bell and wait to be admitted by the steward.
If you are a first time visitor or haven’t visited for some while, please go to the Visiting Us page and fill in the simple form. This will ensure that you are given access and that someone is ready to give you a warm welcome.
When We Meet
Our speaking year starts in September and runs until the end of July with a short break over Christmas. However, each meeting is self-contained, so it doesn’t matter if you miss one, there is no continuity…
Starting at 8.00pm sharp, we aim to finish around 10.00pm
