Programme of Events
Indoor events are generally free to BIAS members. Events are at Keynsham unless otherwise stated. Visitors are very welcome and are invited to make a donation of £4. Outdoor events are individually priced. At the moment, there is no disabled access to the room we use. We are trying to get this fixed.
Covid-19 is still a threat. Please check before attending that you are Covid free.
By Car: From Bristol or Bath, take the Keynsham exit from the Hicks Gate roundabout on the Keynsham bypass. Straight on at Station Road roundabout, turn next right. Substantial council car park on Ashton Way about 50 yards from the Legion.
By Bus: The 38 and A4 services link Keynsham to Bath and Bristol.
By Rail: There are direct hourly services from Bristol Parkway, Bristol Temple Meads and Bath at suitable times to arrive for the meeting. The return trains are also hourly but people wishing to reach Bristol Parkway may need to change at Temple Meads.
