Some of the forthcoming events the group is planning.

These are always subject to change so please look here or on Facebook or Twitter for the up to date position before coming along.

Evensong  An event largely organised by the Cathedral which we have held every year now for quite some time.  12 March starting at 5:30 pm.  Free to come

Thrill of Love  This is a play at the Studio Theatre in Butts Road concerning Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in the UK.  We hope to hand out leaflets at the event (subject to permission from the theatre).  We have abolished the penalty in the UK but from time to time, a desire to reinstate it emerges especially after some terrible crime or terrorist attack.   Amnesty is opposed to the penalty in all circumstances.  We publish a monthly report on the subject.  23 – 28 March

Citizenship day  Schools event 30 June.  If anyone from one of the local schools is reading this and would like us to do our presentation in your school, please get in touch.

Market stall  In Salisbury market place morning of 11 July starting early.  Goods to sell would be welcome and we can collect if needed.  No electrical items (we cannot sell them untested) or VHS tapes please.

Film, Just Mercy  Brilliant film concerning the racially segregated south of America and a black man sentenced to death for the murder of a white girl, a crime he did not commit.  Not shown in Salisbury.  Showing at the Arts Centre 4 November.

These are the things we have planned at present.  If you are thinking of joining us you would be most welcome and introducing yourself at one of the above would be the easiest thing to do.

We are keeping a watching brief on human rights issues in the UK because several ministers and politicians would like to see the Human Rights Act abolished.
