Jam and Jerusalem? Not necessarily! Think flavoured vodka and flamenco, and you get a little closer to the preoccupations of a Baildon Belle. Find out more...

I hope you find our website interesting and informative. We'll be updating it over the next few months so please keep coming back!

Here's our programme of events for 2019. We've worked hard on it so we hope you like it! You can pick up a printed copy of the programme at any meeting. Remember that, as well as the events listed here, we also have a number of offshoots, including a running club and a book club.

Our regular monthly meetings on the last Thursday of each month are listed, as well as other events we are either organising or involved in. You should keep checking the site for information on the latest events as we'll be adding more as the year unfolds. Find out more about where and when we meet...
