Trips & Events

These are one-off events organised by the LALG Social Committee that don't belong to any individual Group.  There are generally 4 of these a year, including a quiz in spring and a summer social. See the Group Events panel to the right for details of up-coming events.

Reports and Photo galleries of past events are shown below.

2019 - I am hoping to secure tickets for a Premier League netball match at Herts University, the home venue for Hertfordshire Mavericks. Hopefully, further details in the November newsletter

See 'Group events' in column on the right for out future programme.



Do you enjoy looking round buildings, gardens and other significant places in London?  This group meets a few times each year to explore locations in the capital.  Travel is by train from a local station, leaving and returning outside peak hours so we can use our railcards. There is sometimes an entry charge. 

Trips are advertised in the LALG magazine and on the website about 2 months in advance.  If you have ideas for where you’d like to go do get in contact.

The aim of this group is to explore either some of the individual villages that became swallowed up in the metropolis (e.g. Highgate, Dulwich, Walthamstow), or to follow themes (e.g. the John Nash Route, Legal London, the East End).  The format is a walk punctuated with stops where the leader will talk about the salient features of the area, such as its history, architecture, connections etc.  All members of LALG are welcome on our walks, but as we are limited by the logistics of a large group using public transport, applications are taken on a strictly “first come” basis.

Visits to museums and places of interest and occasional pub lunches

This group specialises in organising trips to theatres for plays, music concerts, and other major events including sport. Prices usually include good seats and travel by coach from, and returning to, Letchworth.

See the programme of upcoming events in the column on the right headed ‘Group events’. Click on any title and you will see details of the performance, times, method of travel, and how to book your seat.

Possible future visits:-

We meet on the first Thursday of the month to book a trip on a Thursday at the end of the subsequent month making use of reduced rail fares for Advance tickets and/or a group/railcard reduction, but when these are not available for our chosen destination we use OffPeak Day Return tickets. The cost of the fare is usually around £25 but depends on how far we travel and we aim to spend around 4 - 5 hours at our destination

Make new friends and share a holiday or a day out.  All welcome!

We are a non-religious group that is interested in churches and other places of worship – their architecture, monuments, art and history – and the people who have been associated with them over the years.

We generally arrange guided tours of interesting buildings during spring, summer and autumn, and a programme of talks in winter.

Everyone is welcome at all our events; although we don't worship together there is always time during our visits for those who would like some quiet reflection.
