Most events are free to attend, and open to members, guests and the public. Booking is needed for some events. Check the event listings for details.

We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our events or committee meetings.

Looking for activities in the Bedfordshire area?

We have separated the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Areas, so we can focus on providing full programmes of events local to engineers in both areas. You are still welcome to attend events in either area.

The Bedfordshire area programme and committee are here.
