  • Speaker: Digby Ricci: The Chronicles of Narnia
  • Cost: R140.00 per person

Digby is our favourite after-dinner speaker. His topic this year will be C.S. Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia". After his talk on "Game of Thrones" last year, and ďStar WarsĒ the year before, we are really looking forward to his insights into this fabulous fantasy series.

Types of Events

Monthly meetings
These usually occur on the afternoon of the third Saturday of the month, from 15h00 onwards and may take the form of presentations, regular speakers, bring and braai's (barbecues), an outing to the Planetarium and movie screening... R10 for members, R20 for non-members.

Film Club evenings
Usually on the second Friday evening of the month, at Franz and Simone's house. Here we watch the movie for the evening. Can vary from the ridiculous to the sublime, and is selected from our members' extensive personal libraries. We normally start at 19h30 and finish by about 23h00. Entrance is R20.

These include a midyear convention for the more serious fan - consisting of a day of talks, discussions, debates, quizzes and movie screenings - as well as speciality small conventions, such as a Star Trek minicon held in the first half of the year.
