Programme for 2016-17


Bosham Forum is a group of local people who meet together for a programme of lectures, outings and social events. Although originally formed in the 1980s to support a political party, it no longer has any political affiliation or bias! Monthly meetings are held at 7:30pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month, from September to April, in the Function Room of Bosham Village Hall, Walton Lane, Bosham, Chichester PO18 8QF. Everyone is welcome. Membership costs £10 per year (£5 for half-year from 1st January); non-members pay £4 to attend a meeting.
