Event details

Following our last meeting we agreed to look for a more central and accessible venue for future lunches and so we have decided to change from Ferndown Golf Club to the Red Lion Hotel at Salisbury. This is one of the oldest and most attractive hotels in England and easy to reach with a good train service.

For our speaker in September we are delighted to welcome Nicola Solomon talking about Contracts, Copyright and Characters: Legal Tips for Authors followed by questions.


12.30  Arrive for a drink and chat in the bar

 1.00  Lunch in a private room

 2.00  Talk and questions

 3.00  Ends

How to book 

The meal will cost £16 in total - £15 for two courses and coffee, plus an extra £1 to go towards hosting speakers. 

Booking forms will be sent via post to those immediately local to the event, but we want to see as many of our members from the area there as possible, so if you do not recieve one please email Judith who will send a booking form to you.

Further information, booking forms and menus are available from Judith Spelman. If you want to reserve a place now or ask any questions, just drop Judith an email at

Getting here

There are good rail links, and a park-and-ride with buses that stop outside the Red Lion and a number of car parks nearby. There is a bus that connects with the railway station and a taxi takes about 5 minutes.
