OOS Indoor Meetings and COVID-19

As you will be aware, due to the coronavirus pandemic we are not be able to hold our normal ‘live’ indoor meetings at Exeter Hall at the moment, so for now our 2020/21 talks will be given online using Zoom technology.

Zoom technology enables participants to see, hear and participate in talks and meetings. To join in you will require a computer or smartphone with internet connection, camera, loudspeaker and microphone – most modern phones and laptops will be suitable. You will also need an internet link to the Zoom software (which will contain a unique code for the talk) and an ID code, and these will be sent to you by e-mail nearer the time of the talk. There is no charge, but the audience will be limited to 100 so it will be first come, first served!

We will obviously need your e-mail address to do this, so if anyone has not already informed Eric Dunford ( of their e-mail address, please do so ASAP.
