Due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, we regret that all our events this year are cancelled until further notice.

Please check our website for updated information which we will also share through our e-newsletter, ‘Rope Signals’.

Your welfare is our primary concern.

Keep well – and thank you for your patience.

Event List

The Society and its public offshoot, The Diving Museum, offer a wide variety of meetings, events, talks and rallies each year. From lectures on both topical and historical aspect of diving, to demonstrations of diving equipment (including the potential to ‘have a go’), there is something for every diving enthusiast. Our aim is to make our events both enjoyable and informative and we encourage participation.

Covid-19 has presented us with challenges that have prevented us from hosting any events this year. We hope that the situation will improve sufficiently in the coming months to enable us to hold a full programme of events in 2021. We look forward to seeing you then.
