About our Community Events
Our community events are the heartbeat of the Society. They’re where we do things differently rather than just learn about them. We have all kinds of small events in people’s homes, workshops and seminars in churches, pub nights, and more. For example, Anselm Society pub nights are times of community, good food and drink, and all kinds of art--stories, songs, poems, visual art, and much more. Every one is different, but every one has the same core ingredients--good hospitality, and the company of kindred spirits.
