Bowlers are now being invited to put their names down if they wish to be considered for selection in the summer 2020 Outdoor matches.

Visit to St Alban’s Organ Theatre

Following on from the success of our visit to the Whitewebb’s Museum of Transport, the President invites all bowlers, family and friends to a visit to the amazing St Alban’s Organ Theatre hidden away in Camp road near the centre of St Albans.   The theatre houses Belgian dance organs, musical boxes, self playing pianos and two theatre organs most of which will be demonstrated by the enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers who run the museum.

The visit is on Wednesday 4th December and at only £6 a head it is a bargain..  It is not to be missed but pre-booking is essential.
