Cheriton Talks HOME PAGE

The Cheriton Talks have been a welcome feature of Saturday evenings in the dark winter months for the last six years. And a goodly sum has been raised for St Michael’s Church in the process. 

A look at the past programmes will show the wide range of subjects and the high quality of the speakers.

We are delighted to announce the following dates and speakers for the 2018 programme. The full programme will be finalised shortly. Please note that tickets will not be on sale till January 2018. How and where to apply for tickets will be made known by the end of November, but please reserve the dates in your diary.
