Various events such as Quiz Night, Parent and Toddlers' Club  etc. take place on a regular basis and further details of many of these can be found in the Churches' "Together" Magazine.  The Town Newsletter, produced quarterly and also on this website, contains details of many events put on by local clubs and organisations.

For all "Learning in the Market Place" events and the Community Music Taster Sessions, bookings can also be made in the Market House Information Office or by phoning 01963 351763.
