LAMAS Lates Programme

The LAMAS Lates events are free to LAMAS members, £5 for non-members (or join here!), unless otherwise stated. 25 places available per event, and booking can be done by emailing to Jane Sidell at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Where fees are mentioned, these are going to the organisation, and will support their work and staff. Cash on the night (but you may be charged if you don't cancel with a little notice on the tours which have been paid for in advance) or cheques to be made payable to LAMAS.



Whilst most Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted as of September 2020, the price of freedom appears to be that infection rates are rising. It has been said that there is such thing as a free lunch, and the government has left its citizens to decide for themselves what price they consider acceptable. The Society, mindful of safety, health and welfare of its members, is not quite ready to restart LAMAS Lates. We will keep on thinking about what is safe and possible over the coming months, and announcements will be made via email and this page.
