Annual Exhibition and Social

Exhibition and Social Meeting, Saturday 7th December 2019, 11:00 - 4pm

Put the date in your diary now!

This is the event when different naturalists, natural history and wildlife groups and organisations can showcase what they have been up to in the county in the previous year. It is a great opportunity to see what the members, groups, related societies and clubs are doing, and to meet friends, old and new. If you are one of the many people who only know a few other members, here is your chance to meet lots more. Bring your own friends too; everyone is welcome whether members or not. There is food and drink to help the afternoon along. Most of the Club’s Recorders will be present, and other experts, so if you have bits and pieces that you would like identified, do bring them along. And it is all free!

If you can provide an exhibit or you are connected to a local conservation group or wildlife group come along, set up an exhibit and publicise your cause - there is no charge for tables but you must book early to be sure of a space. Contact the Club at or Peter Harvey at to book and for further information.

The venue will be in the Carstairs Room at the Green Centre, at Wat Tyler Country Park, Pitsea Hall Lane, Pitsea, Basildon, Essex SS16 4UH, details below (ignore the google warning, the route finder still works). Download the 2019 Exhibition & Social poster here.
