ACC Programme 2021

Here are the activities for the year. All in-person internal events are held at St Michael's Centre, NP7 5UD. Meeting times are alternate Mondays, between 7:30pm and 9:30pm.

Given the ongoing Covid, we are making the following assumptions: (a) Online with Zoom until Easter. (b) Potentially in person between Easter and Summer, but with planning to allow for easy switch to Zoom (by arrangement with presenters and judges). (c) In person from September. Of course these may change, but at least it gives us a starting point.
