Events

The Marlow Society endeavours to run a variety of events to cover our main focus of interests, and some which are purely social but provide that important point of contact in a diverse Society like ours.

 

We hold presentations in the main hall in Liston Hall, Marlow five times a year. Two of these are organised by our very active Local History group and the others are of more general interest.

 

In addition the Local History Group holds monthly workshops. These take place on a Monday evening in the Garden Room at Liston Hall.

 

Over the summer months a selection of interesting walks around Marlow are organised, which are very popular - see the Walks Group page for more information and the Local History Group Programme (further down this page) for times of specific walks.
