About Club 15

Ours is a club with a core group of regularly attending members that offers a supportive and collegial atmosphere. Our three weekly speeches are often of an interesting, well researched, and thus informative nature. Moreover, our resident purveyor of jokes is guaranteed to have the club in fits, provided he remembers that very few people learn Latin these days.

Venue: our venue is at Easts Leagues Club, now in a meeting room, on the lower ground floor of the club. LG is accessible only via the one lift that will arrive when you press the down button at the lift well near the Spring St entrance to the club. Once you exit the lift on LG, simply follow the meandering corridor, past the 90-degree right-hand turn, until you here voices coming from a room. That'll be us. 

Plenty of off street parking is available.
