Tuesday Forum presents to members a variety of guest speakers who speak in depth on their area of expertise. The topics are as varied as the people who present them – from university lecturers to the local fisherman.
Tuesday Forum is held in the Uniting Church Hall in Fingal Street, Brunswick Heads. See map. There is no Tuesday Forum on the first Tuesday of the month, nor during the school holidays.

By popular request, Des will return with another presentation on Phil Coulter. We enjoyed the original Phil Coulter – An Irish Treasure so much that Des has put together another delight for us: – Phil Coulter – The Sequel. We so appreciate the time and effort that Des puts in to educate and entertain us with his musical favourites. The number of members who come to listen attest to the quality of his work.

We have stretched the term a little to bring our last meeting closer to Christmas. To celebrate, we will have a Christmas theme for this meeting – the annual seniors gala concert, followed by a special festive morning tea.
