BCS Hertfordshire

We are continually trying to put together a programme which will appeal to the widest audience, so any suggestions as to subject matter or speakers we may contact, will be gratefully received.

Guests and non-BCS members are very welcome. Unless otherwise stated, all meetings are free of charge to all attendees. If you wish to attend any meeting, please would you book your places using the booking link given in the meeting information below.

Most of our meetings are divided between two venues: Sopra Steria in Hemel Hempstead and the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield. The meeting times are the same at both of these venues: Registration and refreshments from 7:00pm and the business of meetings start at 7:30pm. Meetings generally finish at about 9:00pm. There are opportunities for networking or just having a chat with other Society members before and after the main business of the meeting.

Travelling instructions for our Sopra Steria venue, may be found here.

Travelling instructions for our University of Hertfordshire venue, may be found here.

Overseas delegates wishing to attend any of these events should note that BCS do not issue invitation letters.
