Our 2020 programme is listed below. we look forward to meeting up.

If anyone has a topic or future speaker in mind please pass that on to The Secretary.

The sad news is that our long standing association with the Museum is coming to an end. Our March meeting will be our last meeting held there. From April our new venue will be Christ’s Church URC 164 New London Road Chelmsford CM2 OAW. It is just down the road from the Museum. There is plenty of parking and further details and a map will be available here nearer the time of our April meeting.

There will be coffee, tea and biscuits available at the meetings (including our new venue).

A prize raffle is now held at most of our meetings.

Please look up our ‘Essex Numismatic Society’ ‘Facebook’ Page and check us out. Join in the discussion.


The Friday 27th March meeting has now been cancelled due to the current advice from NHS and Government. We will review the situation regarding our future meetings starting in April at Christ’s Church URC. At the moment the April meeting is unlikely to go ahead but we will update this information later.
