A regular programme of talks is arranged by the Enfield Society. These are free to members and non-members are welcome to attend for a modest charge (typically £1 per meeting). Refreshments will be available and our sales counter will be open. Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane, is near the junction with Chase Side and there is an access ramp for wheelchairs.
Talks either take place during the day or in the evening. You can check our events calendar for all talks, or just the daytime talks or evening talks.
Other organisations also meet in Jubilee Hall—if you are interested in booking the hall, please see our Jubilee Hall for hire page for details.
If there is a particular subject you would like to see covered at our meetings, or if you know of someone who can speak on a particular topic, please contact the meetings organiser or use our contact form or leave a telephone message with Jubilee Hall.

They will talk about some of the famous people who have been involved in this art form and show examples of quilling that they have produced. There will be an opportunity to buy items they have made.
