The Taborers Session

A monthly online session for TTS Members to get together, chat and play. It’s holiday season, it’s very hot and the upshot is……. there will be no Zoom session for taborers the 14th August.   The next one will be on Sunday 11th September from 4 – 6pm UK time.   Put it in your diary and we look forward to seeing (and hearing!) you then ! – this one is the typical 2nd Sunday of the month..

Participate in Zoom, or watch and chat through our YouTube Live Stream

Zoom and YouTube links are available here, and distributed via the TTS email and group discussion list.
