Due to unforeseen circumstances, our talk at St John’s Church on 21st January, ‘Real-world places associated with King Arthur since the Middle Ages’ has been cancelled. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused. 

Our talks will resume at St John’s Church, on Friday 18th February, when Dr Cheryl Green will be talking about ‘St John’s Church and the Abbey’.




I am pleased to say that with Covid 19 now mostly behind us, the Glastonbury Antiquarian Society's 2021 - 2022 Season is moving forward. Please see the list of talks below or click on the link. Our AGM (previous minutes are here to read) took place on Friday 17th September, 2021, at St John’s Church, Glastonbury High Street, at 7.30pm. 

If you are attending a talk, please enter the church via the Library entrance. If you go past the Library entrance on your RH side, towards St Johns school blue gates, head towards the High Street and you will see the Church Vestry – there will be someone there to meet you.

Many thanks as always - I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.
