The Purley Literary Society, affectionately known as 'Purley Lit,' started in 1901, and has being running continuously except for the war years.
We are currently asking our members and speakers about their willingness to come to
meetings from October or from January. We would be very reluctant to cancel the entire season.
Based on the answers we receive, and the advice from the Government, and from the Church we will publish a provisional programme on this website.
We engage guest speakers to present talks on a variety of topics, usually illustrated.
Meetings are held fortnightly on Tuesdays at 8pm from October to March, and last about an hour.
We meet in the hall of the Purley United Reformed Church, 906, Brighton Road, Purley. CR8 2LN
We offer membership of the Society in two 'sizes':
the entire Autumn and Spring set of 11 talks for £22,
or just the Spring set of 6 talks for £12.
Membership tickets are transferable - if you are unable to attend a meeting, you are encouraged to let a friend use your ticket.
Visitors pay £5 per talk, but any visitor fees already paid are refunded on taking up a membership.
