The CRC meets at St.Paul’s Church Centre, Rossmore Road, Marylebone, London NW1 6NJ. This is an attractive hall which offers a comfortable environment for our meetings. It is a short walk north from Marylebone station on the west side of the line. Rossmore Road crosses over the railway at the station throat. Bus routes 139 from Waterloo to West Hampstead and 189 from Brent Cross to Oxford Circus pass the door. It is outside the congestion charge zone and parking is free after 18.30 on both single yellow lines and meters.
Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month except August - doors open 18.30 for 19.15 start, and there is a small admission charge to cover the cost of hiring the hall: light refreshments are on sale from 18.30 and during the interval. A changing selection of preowned railway books is also on sale.
Meetings for the remainder of the 2019/20 season are listed below. Offers to present shows either in London or Stafford are always welcome. If you can help, please contact Adrian Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07774 859871 to discuss. Both digital and slide presentations are equally acceptable
Owing to the Corona virus lockdown, meetings are cancelled until September 2020 when it is hoped meetings may restart in some form. The forward programme has been revised on this assumption and will incorporate the ‘lost’ presentations during the 2020/21 season. Season Ticket holders should retain their tickets as appropriate allowance will be made once meetings recommence. The provisional programme for the rest of 2020 is listed below. A further update will provided during July.
