The Society organises a regular series of informative talks on topics of local interest during the year. These usually take place on the second Monday evening in the month, starting at 7:30pm in the City Hall, St Davids.

The Friends of Oriel y Parc
The Friends of Oriel y Parc has many shared interests with the St Davids Historical Society, and as such, we feel that it would be useful to our Members to be aware of the Talks that both societies hold. Each website will remind the other Society where information can be found about the next Talk.
Friends’ Talks take place on the first Wednesday in the month at 7:00 pm in The Discovery Room at Oriel y Parc
On behalf of the Committee, I hope that you are well and are able to manage in this difficult time.
As you know, and like all other similar Societies, we are unable to hold any Talks or even committee meetings until further notice, a circumstance that may continue for some time.
Consequently, we have been discussing what options are open to us and feel that a series of documentary (or virtual) ‘Talks’ may well be a useful substitute, so we will begin to issue these to you in email form and via our website - you may well have already received the first Virtual Talk on Lucy Walters. These Virtual Talks will be quite short and in Adobe Acrobat PDF form and which can easily be printed if required. We will also send copies through the post to those Members that we have identified as not having an email address, but we cannot send postal copies to all Members as that would be prohibitively expensive.
We will not attempt to keep to a fixed schedule, although we do plan for these communications to be at least monthly, and in the meantime, we will continue to try to improve our approach.
I would be grateful if you would let other Members know of this plan, as we do not have email addresses for everyone. If you have changed your email address or acquired one, please let us know as it is a much easier way of communicating with you.
