The East Midlands Branch 2017 Field Trip Program is now available at East Midlands Butterflies Events


Cancelation of Weekend Away to Isle of Wight

The East Midlands Branch regrets that due to a sudden family bereavement, Richard Penson is unable to lead this trip. Consequently we have decided to cancel this years weekend away.

Please check our other events listings as we still have a packed program of field trips for the rest of the summer.
