Future REAL Events

As we move out of lockdown, the committee are investigating what events we can offer in a 'Covid safe' manner.  At this time we are not planning to offer coach travel, but are considering options where members can make their way to an event using their own transport, or public transport where appropriate.

The following events are scheduled, so if you are interested you may wish to make a diary entry.

Shakespeare’s Henry V

Hursley Clubhouse

19:00, 9 July 2021

An opportunity to see an outdoor performance of Henry V in the grounds of Hursley Clubhouse.  More details and how to obtain tickets will be sent out in a future email.

Bombay Sapphire Tour

13:00 or 13:30, 27 July 2021

Own Transport to Whitchurch

Visit the Bombay Sapphire distillery, and take a tour at discounted prices for members and their guest/spouse.  No coach transport provided, use own or public transport.  Tickets will cost £6pp, and details will be sent out in a future email.

Hursley Club Membership

As from January 2020, there will be an annual fee of £20 (per family) for retirees to continue their membership of the IBM Hursley Club.  This allows full use of the club facilities and the bar (but does not confer voting rights at their AGM).

Application forms are available from the Club Office.
