Program 7 July - 20 October, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our first half program at Hotel Harry had to stop. We will re-commence using the zoom platform on Tuesday 7 July if the physical distancing rules still require that.  As soon as Hotel Harry reopens, we will hold politics in the pub face-to-face.

We now have use of the Diner, upstairs at Hotel Harry, Cnr Wentworth Ave & Goulburn St, Surry Hills.

The event starts at 6.30pm. We will finish at 8.15pm or when the last question is answered, whichever comes first.
