Burnley Civic Trust Meetings

Meetings are generally held monthly and are usually held in the Burnley Town Hall on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.00pm. The aim is for every third meeting to be an "Activity" rather than a business meeting with a member or guest giving a talk or presentation on a topic of interest. For details please see recent Agendas and Minutes.

Non members with an interest in the Civic Trusts aims are welcome to attend our meetings, by prior notification of intent.
